Brantley, a 1982 Smithfield-Selma High School graduate, began his ministry at Princeton on July 1, coming from Trinity Memorial and St. Mary’s United Methodist churches in Trinity, NC, where he served four years.
Brantley replaces former Pastor David Hutchins who, according to the North Carolina Conference website, is on family leave.
