Brian has recently moved back to New Jersey after spending the last three years in Flushing, NY where he was serving as a Youth Pastor for Promise Ministries International, a flagship church for the 4/14 Window Movement.  Brian has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Cornell University as well as a Master’s of Divinity from Regent University with an emphasis on Biblical Studies.  Although wanting to continue in academia, Brian felt called and convicted to serve in the local church and started serving as a Youth and Young Adult pastor for the last 6 years in multiple ministry positions.  Brian is an Ordained Minister with the Church of God NJ and has recently taken a position as the Youth and Young Adult Pastor at The New Covenant Church of God in Plainfield, NJ.  Brian will transition into the directorship position starting September 2016.
