Bryan Brotherton, Lead Pastor
Bryan joined the staff in 2013 after serving fifteen years as Associate Pastor of Disciple-Making at Grace Church in Normal, IL. God drew him to a preaching pastorate, where he can use his spiritual gifts of teaching, administration, and leadership to shepherd a church family.
Born the last of six children, Bryan was raised in a farming community outside Oberlin, OH, where he enjoyed raising livestock and playing in the woods. Carried into the church from infancy, he first expressed his trust in Christ as a 4-year-old. After an undergrad degree in Economics from Kenyon College and three years in the business world, Bryan earned a Master of Theology degree in Pastoral Leadership from Dallas Theological Seminary.
Bryan met his wife Christina at church while attending college. They married in 1989. They have two sons: Luke is a college student at Cedarville University in Ohio, and Grant attends Sauk Prairie High School. For exercise, Bryan bicycles and jogs.

“My family is incredible and is the joy of my life after my relationship with Jesus. I have been married to my wonderful wife for 20 years. She supports me in everything I do and is the best mother to my children that I could hope for. My kids are absolutely fantastic and are the three best gifts from heaven I could ask for. I love them uniquely and equally.
