Brian and his wife Jen are both University of Wisconsin graduates, who moved back to Madison in 2010 after spending three awesome years in Charlotte, North Carolina. After spending a few years working at the University as an Internal Auditor, Brian felt a strong desire to invest in the lives of students spiritually. It wasn’t long before Brian became a Youth Pastor at Heartland Community Church in Sun Prairie, WI. His passion to lead students and share the love of Christ with them has been evident, as he has grown the youth group in incredible ways. Brian has had the pleasure of watching his friends Nick, Andy and Todd answer God’s calling by starting Next Step Ministries from the beginning. In the summer of 2008, he went to New Mexico on his first mission trip.  Since then, Brian has been blessed to go on many mission trips (South Dakota, Jamaica, Bahamas, and Milwaukee). In 2011, Brian and Jen were presented with the opportunity to be Co-Site Directors in Milwaukee. It was incredible for them to spend an entire summer serving close to home and being able to witness students grow in their relationship with Christ. Brian is definitely an advocate of short-term missions as he has seen God do amazing things over and over again —not only in his life, but in many other lives. He now brings his middle school and high school students on trips each summer, to experience the same overwhelming feeling of Christ’s love as he did just a few years prior.
