Brian was born in Champaign and raised in Glen Ellyn, so his decision to serve at Restoration Community Church brings him back near his childhood roots. He received his Bachelor of Arts in History at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Master of Divinity and a Master of Theology (New Testament) from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Before coming on board at Restoration, Brian served as an associate pastor at Calvary English Chapel in Wheeling and as a youth and singles pastor at the Korean Church of Chicago in Hoffman Estates. He also did some overseas work in Guam. He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA).
During his spare time Brian enjoys reading, watching movies, listening to classical music, and spending time with his family. He and Jane were married in 2001, and they are the proud parents of Timothy, Titus and Leah.
