Leadership & STAFF

    Senior Pastor

    Brian has served as Senior Pastor at FBC Vandalia since September 2016. Before coming to Vandalia, he and his wife Melissa served as IMB missionaries to Madagascar, which is where they met (he would be happy to tell you the story).


    On serving as pastor at FBC, “We have a great church family here at FBC Vandalia. I am humbled to be used by God as he transforms lives through his word. Melissa and I enjoy serving the church as we all strive to glorify God and make disciples through our worship, our words, and our actions.”


    Brian is a graduate of Hannibal-LaGrange University (BA English, History), Memphis University (MA English – ESL), and Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (MTS).


    Beyond serving the church, Brian’s passions include spending time with his bride, following sports, fishing, and playing board games.

    Feel free to contact Brian by email or by calling the Church Office.
