Dr. Mikey Mewborn spent most of his early years living in the beautiful city of Tampa, Florida. In 1986, the Mewborn family moved to Memphis, Tennessee, seeking new job opportunities. While in Memphis, Dr. Mewborn surrendered his life to Jesus Christ at Hickory Ridge Baptist Church. Two years later, the Mewborn family moved back to Tampa, where they lived until Dr. Mewborn graduated from the University of South Florida (Go Bulls!). After much prayer and consideration, he returned to Memphis to pursue a Master of Divinity degree at Mid-America. He graduated from Mid-America with his Master of Divinity in 2005 and applied for the PhD program a few years later. In 2014, Dr. Mewborn graduated with his PhD in Practical Theology.

Over the last several years, Dr. Mewborn has ministered at wonderful churches, including Davis Islands Baptist Church (Tampa, Florida), Bellevue Baptist Church (Cordova, Tennessee), and Collierville First Baptist Church (Collierville, Tennessee). In 2010, Dr. Mewborn was called to be the senior pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church of Collierville, Tennessee. He served EBC for nine fantastic years until his transition to Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary.

Dr. Mikey Mewborn currently serves as Dean of the Seminary as well as Vice President of Student Life. He is married to his beautiful wife, Dr. Emily Mewborn. They are the proud parents of John “Wesley” Mewborn.
