Now, with his wife, Lisa, and their 5 girls and baby boy, he still enjoys the same things (except motorcycles), and has an entire household to share them with.
Pastor Brian attended Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit, PA. Brian served on staff at Southgate Baptist Church in Springfield, OH for three years. He is truly passionate about communicating God's Word and leading people in dynamic corporate worship.

With 4 grandchildren, and two more on the way, Eric and his wife enjoy visiting family when it’s time for vacation and on occasion the coast of Maine or upstate Michigan.
