Pastor Creel will soon celebrate 44 years at Brush Arbor Baptist. While attending Florida Technical College (now UCF), he was called to begin a church on the east side of Orlando with three families. The church was soon able to purchase property and build a building on Goldenrod Road. The ministry has continued to grow under Pastor Creelís leadership including the beginning of a Christian school in the 70ís. Pastor Creel and his wife Peggy are involved in both the ministries of the church and the school. They have one daughter, Kimberly, who resides in Orlando.
