Intentionally discussing taboo topics with clarity.Brian is an almost priest, an almost missionary and an almost pastor. He is a Christ-follower on the journey of life who loves family, friends, philosophy, writing, blogging and dialogue. He loves all things related to Steelers, technology and penguins. He has been happily married to a wonderful, intelligent and beautiful wife since 1994 and has four amazing children.Brian's religious background is extensive. He grew up in the Roman Catholic Church, participating in Catechism classes through high school as well as completing the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion. In college he became a leader in a campus bible study organization from Korea where he donated nearly 40 hours of time every week for 16 years. He has gone to Russia as a missionary, amassed over 15,000 hours of bible meditation and was "pastor" in his own house church for eight years. In 2012 he was baptized at a local North American Baptist church. Currently he does not attend any church and considers himself one of the "dones". In 2015, Brian is on a journey back to a church community.In 2011, Brian and his family realized and escaped the undue religious influence that the campus bible study group and their Christianized ideologies had exerted on their lives. Those stories are in his first three books: "Rest Unleashed", "Goodness Found" and "Unexpected Christianity".
