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”.
Brian and his wife Amy have four adult children and two grandchildren. When Brian isn’t studying, he can be found working on construction projects (at his home, the Flower Shop in Calumet, or the homes of his friends and family), tending to their “farm”, and in general fixing what’s broken. Brian and Amy enjoy hosting families at their home and spend much time building relationships with their church family.
