  • Nolan clackley

    Youth Pastor

    Hello! I am a native of Albertville, AL and have grown up in Marshall County while attending church in the local area. I have served, volunteered, and interned in different churches across the state. I have obtained my undergraduate degree from the University of Alabama in Business Administration. My biggest passion is presenting and connecting the next generation with the true Gospel of Jesus and guiding them to grow in the Church as believers and leaders in their communities. I would love to be able to meet you and your family and I firmly believe Bethsaida Baptist Church is a great FAMILY based church where everyone can grow together.
