Brian and his wife, Cristie, planted Evangel Assembly in 1996 with a desire to serve. Evangels motto is “Here to Serve” and Brian and Cristie live this out in several ways. Brian has served on the School Councils of three Wilbraham Schools and the Wilbraham Tornado Relief Committee as well as worked to support the town’s Veteran’s Department and Senior Center. Cristie has served as PTO president at multiple public schools in Wilbraham. They have both served as mentors for at risk children as well as worked with character development programs at local public schools. Internationally, they love to serve those most in need by their continued work with Evangel’s adopt a village program serving and leading others in serving the children of Haiti. Brian’s desire is to lead a church that helps people connect with God, others, and the community and world in meaningful ways.
Brian and Cristie have two sons, Colin (graduate both of Minnechaug High School and UMass Amherst) and Cody (a 9th grader who runs track and loves sports); and two grandsons Tristyn (“TT”) and Karstyn (“KarKar”). Brian enjoys reading, exercising, kayaking, and watching his favorite sports teams. Cristie enjoys reading, kayaking, and making sure there’s time for some quiet nights at home!
