pastorwebsite2Growing up in North Carolina, Brian never dreamed he might someday be a pastor.  After high school Brian lived far from God, and thought education and a good career were the great achievements to pursue.  After a life led in rebellion to the love of God, Brian gave his life to Christ in the summer of 1998.  Since then, his life changed dramatically.

Brian became a tenacious student of the Bible, learning from many men of God, reading any book he could get his hands on, and earning a Bachelor degree from Southern Evangelical Seminary and a Masters of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. With a love of theology, philosophy, apologetics, and the biblical languages, he now serves as the Senior Pastor of the historic Northside Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC. 

Brian's passions are upholding biblical truth and teaching others about the love of Christ. He spends his time teaching and serving others in order to show that no matter what they have done in life, God loves them. 

The Lord has blessed Brian with an amazing wife, Amy, and two beautiful children, Elizabeth and Jackson. Those who know him are also aware of his love of college basketball and Nascar.
