Lead Worship Pastor
Brian is the Lead Worship Pastor here at Emmanuel Enid, where he is responsible for leading, directing, and coordinating the worship arts ministries here at the church. He leads weekly in the Journey (8:00 am) and The Bridge (9:00 am) services each week, working with our Worship Experience Team and the teams in these services to provide engaging, powerful corporate worship. He also leads on a regular basis in our Refuge service (11:15 am), working with our Refuge band to create a high-energy, impactful, contemporary worship experience.
Brian and his wife, Kara, who is our primary keyboardist/pianist, are both natives of Oklahoma and are excited to be at Emmanuel Enid working with the worship arts ministry teams here. Both have bachelor's degrees in music from Oklahoma Baptist University, while Brian has a Master’s of Music with a concentration in worship from Southwestern Seminary, and Kara has a Master’s of Music in Piano Pedagogy from Texas Christian University. The joy of their lives is their three wonderful children, Noah, Katherine, and Mollie.
