Pastor Brian started at FBH in August of 2022 as the Next Gen Pastor where his primary responsibilities are to provide a comprehensive strategy from birth through 18 years old. He gives oversight to the children’s ministry directors and provide hands on direction to the student ministry. Brian is incredibly gifted in administration, teaching, and talking about board games.

He grew up in the  Swedish village of Central California also known as  Kingsburg, CA. He attended Reedley College before transferring to Fresno State. During that time he worked as an EMT in Fresno. After graduating from Fresno State, he was called into youth ministry at Kingsburg Community Church and knowing he wanted to be in vocational ministry long-term, he attended and graduated from Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary.

Amid school and work life he managed to marry his bride Madisen in 2015 and had a really cute kid named Theodore (he prefers to be called Theo) in March of 2022.

Outside of ministry life, he enjoys playing board games with friends, disc golfing, skiing, camping, and spending quality time with his wife and son.
