Brian attended his first of many CMDA family conferences at Deer Valley Ranch as a six-month-old. Later he went twice with his physician dad on CMDA missions trips to the Dominican Republic. With this family association with CMDA and a ministry focused career, Brian was an easy target for Allan Harmer's recruiting radar when he moved back to Wichita, Kansas in 2015. Now part time associate staff, Brian is happy to reconnect with CMDA and use his experience and heart for student ministry with students from the Wichita branch of KU Medical School and the PA school at WSU.
Ordained in the Evangelical Free Church of America, Brian graduated from Wheaton College (BA) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.DIv). He has served as a church planting pastor, served in low income ministries,been a teacher and coach, and ministered as a high school chaplain at an International Christian school in Taiwan. Currently he is a high school teacher at a Christian school in Wichita, Ks. Brian has been married to Carolyn for twenty-nine years, and they have four children.
