Pastor Brian has been the Rector of St. James for five years. He also serves as the Canon for church planting for the Diocese of Western Anglicans. Brian has a passion to see people transformed and healed by the power of God. Prior to coming to St. James, he planted and pastored an Anglican church in Yucaipa, CA. Although Brian committed his life to Jesus when he was in high school, Brian has not always been a pastor. He was a Peace Corps volunteer in the Congo where he taught English; he worked in consumer products marketing in Atlanta and Beijing; and he worked in marketing consulting in New York City. He met his wife Julie at a Bible study in New York City. They have been doing ministry together ever since. They have a son Simeon, age 17, whose passion is football.
