Executive Pastor of Ministries

(260) 469-4444

Hi, I'm Brent.

Brent is a church planter and rebuilder, a networker and server, and Pathway's Executive Pastor of Operations. He loves to meet people and tell them about Jesus. He’s also crazy about going to McDonald’s and saying, “Senior coffee, please." Brent would love to meet you at your favorite hang-out and get to know you better. When he’s not at work, you might find him with some new friends who like playing with antique cars—or you may see him in a Model T Ford from time to time when the weather’s warm. He’s been married to Lori for 38 years, and they love to laugh, have fun, and spend time with their three kids, their kids' spouses, and their eight grandkids.

Any pet peeves?

When people say, “To be honest…”

When people look at you, they would never guess:

I secretly wish I could be Jeff Glor on CBS News.
