With childhood roots in the Keweenaw, Brian has served as a staff Pastor at Bethany since returning to the area more than a decade ago. As Bethany’s primary teaching Pastor, Brian most often preaches through a book of the Bible, with a focus on presenting the original context and a diligence for accurate interpretation. He desires that God’s Word be learned, understood, and applied in a practical way for daily living. Brian’s passion is twofold: sharing the Gospel, and equipping his fellow Christians for the work of ministry. Or simply put, “making disciples”.
Together with his wife Amy and four children, they have raised dozens of chickens, numerous pigs, countless acres of hay, and two mules on their local hobby farm (Brian has become a skilled heavy equipment operator… and mechanic!). They enjoy hosting their small group, and building relationships with their church family.
