History : Brentwood Baptist Church is Established On August 22, 1968, under the sponsorship of Woodmont Baptist Church, a mission for the Brentwood area was started in the chapel of the Baptist Childrens Home on Franklin Road. On September 8, at 2:30 p.m., sixty-five people gathered for the first worship service. On October 6, a full schedule, including Sunday School (with 77 in attendance) and Training Union. The first converts of the new mission were baptized on November 3 at Woodmont. On November 27, Dr. Charles Treadway, long-term employee of the Baptist Sunday School Board, was called as Interim Pastor. Young Harper was asked to serve as part-time Minister of Music. A budget of $38,030 was adopted in December, with 10% allocated to the Cooperative Program. On February 9, 1969, the mission voted to become a church and agreed to assume an indebtedness of $4,000, which the Nashville Baptist Association had advanced for the lot on Franklin Road. The name Brentwood Baptist Church was adopted on March 19, and on April 3 the Trustees filed papers of incorporation with the Secretary of State. The church was duly constituted on Easter Sunday, April 13.
