Brian is a full-time doctoral student at New Orleans Baptist Theological seminary pursuing a PhD in Theology. Brian and his wife, Laura, have been a part of FBC Belle Chasse since April of 2018, along with their two daughters, Mabry and Maggie. Brian has served in student ministry for over a decade and has been leading worship for over twenty years, serving churches in Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama, and California. While serving in student ministry, Brian fell in love with communicating God's word, which led to accepting a role as a head pastor.
Brian's mission statement for ministry is "Discovering who we are in Christ together." The church serves as a support for those who are pursuing a personal relationship with Christ, providing support for spiritual growth that starts at home and is strengthened by the church.
"After having served various churches as minister of music for 23 years, I am still growing into my administrative role at First Baptist Belle Chasse each day. My vision is to facilitate church members to work together toward common goals, which requires faith in God, sensitivity, integrity, timing, administrative skills, and resourcefulness. I am discovering that even good administration and wise management is as much an art with people as a skill-set with paper. With this responsibility, I desire to help our church fulfill her mission for Christ."
