Pastor Bryan was born in Jacksonville, FL and grew up in the Northeast Florida area. In 2007, he co-planted and co-led Journey Church in Jacksonville, FL. In 2011, Bryan and Reneé were called to plant a new work to reach the people in the ancient city of Saint Augustine, FL. In January of 2012, Reverb Church held its first worship experience where Bryan serves as the Lead/Vision Pastor.
Pastor Bryan and his wife Reneé have been married since 1995. In addition to preaching and leadership, he and Reneé have spent most of their years in marriage leading worship and songwriting together. Passionate and experiential worship is a huge part of both of their lives. They have two beautiful girls, Ashtyn and Taylor, who are both actively serving the Lord in ministry and leadership.
Pastor Bryan loves church planters and other local pastors. Unifying the Church of Jesus Christ and pastoring ministry leaders is a part of his calling! He desires to help pastors and their teams grow and learn how to become better leaders in the body of Christ. He currently serves as a group leader over several churches within the Next Level Relational Network and is also the founder of the Collective Churches in Northeast Florida that serves over 40 churches. The Collective Churches exist for ministry leaders to connect, collaborate, and care for one another for the advancement of the Gospel.
