In addition to his strong work ethic, Bryant also serves as a Pastor.  He is the Pastor of Green Grove Baptist Church in Smithville on the first Sunday of each month.  He pastors Greater New Lebanon in Plains on the second and fourth Sunday’s and is the Pastor of County Line Baptist Church in Leslie and preaches there on the third Sunday of each month.

He is married to Deborah Ann Bryant and they have four grown children, three boys and one girl and 12 grandchildren.
