The son of parents who instilled serving Jesus into his life, Brian was raised in church. “I remember at an early age the understanding of my need for a Savior. It seems that every time there was an altar call I went forward to ask Jesus into my heart. It was at 14 that I accepted Christ once and for all with His assurance that I simply needed to walk it out.” This was just beginning of Brian’s grace-filled journey of faith. “My relationship with Jesus is more precious to me than ever. I’m so thankful God has held me and led me through this journey of life even when I haven’t necessarily held onto Him as tightly as I should have. He is so faithful and loving!”
As Brian reflects on his many years of full time ministry, he fondly remembers his many opportunities to sing and minister for the Lord. At the age of 21 Brian was asked to join the PTL Singers on the PTL Club television program. It was during this time that he met his beautiful wife, Kelly. “She has been such a strength in our marriage and I’ve relied on her insight and wisdom so many times throughout the years.” Since being married in 1988, Brian & Kelly have ministered together in music and pastoral ministry in various churches. “God has been so gracious and good to us. It continues to be a privilege to share the Gospel to the hurting and lost and to serve people.”
Brian & Kelly have two grown sons, Cameron and Braden. Cameron & Erica live in North Carolina and have three children, Jack, Piper, & Wyatt. Braden & Adlynn and are enjoying life together as newlyweds in Georgia. They all have a heart for the Lord and are serving Him in various areas of ministry. They are a joy to their parent’s heart.
As Brian & Kelly minister at Faith Assembly, it’s their sincere desire to serve and love as an extension of Christ, seeing souls saved and people grow in a relationship with Jesus Christ, who then take the Gospel message out to others as the church impacts the surrounding community & the world with the love and hope of Christ. Their motto – Everything is connected to a soul.
In all they do they desire to see God glorified and His people strengthened.
