Pastoral Resident

Brian spent his formative years at Hespeler Baptist where he learned about his need to repent of his sin and turn to follow Christ. Although he left in his early 20’s, by God’s grace he is now back having joined the pastoral leadership team here at Hespeler after being a member at Grace Bible Church in Cambridge for the past ten years. After completing a BA at Wilfrid Laurier and working the business world for 14 years, Brian discerned a call to ministry and enrolled in the Canadian Armed Forces in a full-time capacity in 2017. Brian is currently a Lieutenant in the Canadian Armed Forces as part of the Royal Canadian Chaplain Service. Having recently finished his MDiv at Heritage College & Seminary, as part of his military Chaplaincy training, Brian started his two-year pastoral role in August 2020 at HBC. Brian grew up in Cambridge and now lives in Kitchener with his wife Julie. They have two children Sam (22) and Kate (20).
