Pastor Bryan (or PB) came to Living Hope as the Lead Pastor in November of 2014.
Bryan was born & raised in Sioux Falls, SD. It was there that he met his wife Joan and where they (PB&J) raised their two children (daughter, Lauren, and son, Jaron).
Although PB has been involved with church and lay ministry most of his adult life, he spent the first 25 years of his career as a Plastering and Drywall Contractor in the family business. It wasn’t until later in life, while running the family business, that God finally got his attention to take the necessary classes to become ordained and go into ministry full time. Bryan came into ministry through his home church, Linwood Church in Sioux Falls, where he was the Connections, Life Groups, and Worship Pastor.
PB has a heart for people, and uses his years of experience as a contractor to help people understand that our relationship with God is not only on Sunday but that we can live our lives the same way through the week as well. PB is passionate about helping people realize the purpose in which God created them and to help them uncover it so they will not just exist, but live a fulfilled life. PB spends his life asking...What’s the Why behind the What?
I have never met one I didn’t like, but I prefer a thin crust pepperoni and black olive.
That’s a hard one… Usually ones with a lot of action, where the good guys win, of course--like the Star Wars series or Lord of the Rings--but I wouldn’t rule out an occasional chick flick where the guy gets the girl and wins the day either.
I enjoy being with family and when the kids were younger they did a lot of camping and jet skiing. My favorites are still hanging out with family, golf, bowling, camping, and remodeling my house (when I get time).
Something Most People Don’t Know About Me:
I have my Pilot’s license for both single engine air planes and hot air balloons.
