Brian met his wife Holly
in Stillwater, Oklahoma when he served as the college pastor of Countryside Baptist Church. Holly has always been very active in ministry. She is not only Brian’s partner in life, but also a partner in ministry. They were married on Oct. 14, 2007 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Both Holly and Brian are fully committed to one another and to growing as a couple and glorifying God through their marriage.
Holly was born in Buffalo, Oklahoma. She attended Oklahoma State University but graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 1998 with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in physical therapy. Holly genuinely has a gentle, quiet spirit and her love for God overflows into the way she loves others. She has a heart to know God and His Word as she seeks to continually grow into the image of Christ. Her spiritual gifts include service, giving, and leading. She and Brian love serving God together as He uses their ministry and marriage to encourage others.
Holly also has a personal call to ministry. She enjoys serving in the church, teaching in women’s ministry, and helping in children’s. She looks forward to getting involved in the life of the church at Valley View and discovering her place to serve.
Brian and Holly have two kids, Julia who is 6 and Sam who is 4. Julia is a beauty on the inside and out. She is smart, funny, and loves ballet and princesses. She is a loyal friend and a great helper. Sam is a strong young man. He is their little comedian who is full of life and energy. He has many friends and enjoys Ninja Turtles and sports such as soccer.
Brian’s family has a lot of fun together. When they are not playing with the kids at the park or wrestling around the house Brian enjoys reading, watching sports, and exercising (including cycling, swimming, running, and strength training). He has completed two sprint triathlons and enjoys outdoor recreation. He also loves to go fishing and get a round of golf or a pick-up game of soccer in once in a while (he played soccer at Texas State). Both Brian and Holly enjoy reading and discussing what they are learning. They strive to to pray daily, date weekly, retreat often!
