Brian grew up on a farm in rural Missouri as part of a family that loves international mission work. He majored in English at Hannibal-LaGrange University. After graduating from college, he taught high school English and remodeled houses in his neighborhood.
Brian and his wife Kassie first learned about Serge when their church plant studied The Gospel-Centered Life together. In 2012, they moved to Southern Spain with their three young children and joined a Serge church-planting team. In 2013, they accepted leadership of the Serge Apprenticeship program in that same region. Brian assumed the role of Associate Director of Mission in 2017.
