Dr. Derek Westmoreland

We are proud to announce that Derek Westmoreland, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church in Millington, Tennessee, is our 2022 Alumnus of the Year.

Mid-America President Dr. Mike Spradlin said about the honoree, “Dr. Westmoreland is a stellar example of the kind of graduate that Mid-America produces—committed to the local church, passionate about missions and evangelism, and dedicated to preaching the Gospel. He represents thousands of other alumni who are out on the field, representing Mid-America well, and most importantly, lifting high the Cross, proclaiming Christ’s love, and bearing His name.”

Dr. Westmoreland received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Union University (1998), a Master of Divinity degree from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (2002), and a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Expository Preaching from Union University (2014).
