Hi, I'm Brian.

Brian proudly leads the PCC staff in the discovery of new and exciting food destinations all around Fort Wayne. While he won't accept the moniker of "foodie," Brian loves to build community around unique and delicious food experiences. Around Pathway, Brian helps people take their next step toward areas of connection and serving. He is a grad of Bethel College with a degree in Biblical Literature, and has a Masters of Divinity from Wesley Seminary. He and his wife, Sheri, have two sons, Noah and Gideon, and a daughter, EllaJane, whom they adopted from China in 2014. As a family, they enjoy the simplicity of cool summer nights in northern Michigan, cheering on the Irish in the fall, and exploring new hobbies and adventures every year.

A fireman or a high school chemistry teacher

Your favorite road trip snack:

Beef jerky

Iced coffee with caramel—365 days a year!

I will be unable to recall what they were wearing or how their hair looked if anyone asks me.

Funniest vacation memory:

I once found my brother’s retainer after he lost it. Two days later. In Lake Michigan.
