I’m Brian, a United Methodist pastor, and I am following God’s leading to start a new church in growing areas of Horizon West and West Orange. I previously pastored at United Methodist Churches in Ormond Beach and Orlando. This new adventure in West Orange has me thrilled beyond words and feels to me like the culmination of all my past experiences. The abundance of houses being built is a clear reminder that we naturally gather into a community. I want to create the kind of church that allows us to thrive in life. To do that, we need God’s help, and your’s too.
One of the amazing people helping to start this venture is my wife, Melanie. She’s worked in the past with Disney, as a Director in Early Childhood Education, and much more. Feel free to ask her about some of the things she has done. Now, she is a full-time mom who is raising, teaching, and loving our two children. Melanie and I just celebrated our 11-year wedding anniversary. But our story goes back to 2001, when we first met on the Walt Disney World College Program.
