AILEY — In a called meeting Jan. 9, Daniell Baptist Association‘s executive committee approved Brewton-Parker College professor Billy Puckett as its new director of missions. 

Puckett, who serves at BPC as assistant professor of Theology and director of Community and Church Relations, replaces Robby Smith. Smith led the association for more than nine years before accepting a similar position in North Carolina. 

Association leaders originally formed an interim search committee to find its next director. However, once the committee interviewed Puckett members passed along their recommendation to Don Moye, executive pastor of First Baptist Vidalia and association moderator, that the professor be considered for the position long-term. Therefore, the interim committee handed off the process to the search committee. 

Prior association experience

Both committees’ support led to Puckett’s unanimous approval from the association’s administrative team. Puckett will serve with part-time duties at BPC as well as Daniell Association. 

Before coming to Brewton-Parker, Puckett served as an associate director of missions in New Orleans as the city struggled to recover from Hurricane Katrina. While earning his Ph.D in Theology and Ethics at New Orleans Seminary, Puckett gathered nearly ten years of experience working with organizations such as Samaritan’s Purse, Habitat for Humanity, and the New Orleans Baptist Association alongside the Louisiana Baptist Convention and Southern Baptist Convention. 

Puckett lives in Ailey with his wife, Katy, and their sons, John-William and Jack.
