Brian came to Stuart Heights as the Associate Pastor in May of 2010. He serves as one of the teaching pastors and can be found preaching at the different campuses of Stuart Heights. He oversees our small groups, Stuart Heights University (our Wednesday evening classes), and Growth Track (new member assimilation). Brian and his wife, Amy, have five children (Abby, Campbell, Graham, Christian, and Nathanael). When he finds some free time, he enjoys golf, hunting, and fishing. He is also an aspiring gardner and enjoys playing music. Every once in awhile, you may find Brian filling in for one of the band members on guitar or bass. When the rare occasion arises, Brian loves to snow ski.
Interesting fact about yourself: I used to be the lead singer of a Christian heavy metal band. I like beets.
Favorite food/ restaurant: I like food. If given the choice, I like a good steak, or food that I’ve caught or grown. Bonefish Grill is one of my favorites.

Why do you love SHBC?: It is our church family and we are honored and blessed to be part of it. We are blessed with super music, great children’s and student ministries, in addition to a host of other opportunities; but the thing that I love the most about SHBC is that it is genuinely family.
