I’m really enjoying reading Bryan’s writings. His ministry fills his writing with practical, pastoral instincts that make his blogs readable, relevant, and worth recommending!

Bryan has mentored my now-husband and I from singleness all the way through our first year of marriage. We never felt like passive students—more like active participants in building a relationship that glorified God, with an experienced and invested counselor as our guide.

Hey everyone,

I'm  Bryan.

Jesus rescued me from me during my first month in college. Since then, I've had the privilege of serving him as a pastor, coach and writer. God has given me an amazing wife, four wonderful kids (including one with special needs), and a passion for mentoring younger guys and couples. Fun for me includes staying active, roasting coffee, learning about nearly anything, and following the Philadelphia Eagles, a peculiar form of sanctification.
