Bryan joined the staff in 2013 as Lead Pastor 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 and they have two adult sons, Luke (married to Amy) and Grant. For exercise, Bryan enjoys bicycling through the Wisconsin countryside. Contact Pastor Bryan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
