Bryan was born and raised in England before coming to the US in his mid-twenties, and has lived in Oregon ever since, (twenty-six years in Central Oregon). Prior to vocational ministry he worked in the horticultural industry on nurseries growing trees and shrubs and had a landscape maintenance business. Bryan is a graduate of Gateway Seminary and has been pastor at SRCC for twelve years and is married to Leslie, and they have four children between them, and two grandchildren. His passion is to disciple through the word of God to help people grow in their understanding of the beauty of Jesus Christ and the depth of His riches, and see it reflected in their lives. Aside from loving Jesus, his family and church, Bryan enjoys trail running and fly fishing.
