Pastor Brian

Brian has been the Executive Pastor at LUMC since January 2023, while previously serving as the Human Resources & Engagement Manager. Brian’s greatest desire is to see people equipped and empowered to serve in the church and impact the world around them. In 16 years of ministry, he has worked to support and develop staff and volunteer leaders in every area of church ministry, and he is excited to continue this work at Linworth UMC.

Brian has a bachelor’s degree from Kent State University and a masters degree in theology from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. He has been married to his wife Kristen for 10 years, and together they have a 6-year-old son, Lincoln, and a 1-year-old daughter, Rachel. Rounding out the family are their two flat-faced dogs, Lilo the Boston Terrier, and Zelda the Pug. In his free time you will likely find Brian holding a guitar, a frisbee, or a good cup of coffee.
