Brian's position brings the curricular and co-curricular sides of campus together; as a faculty member in the Department of Biblical and Religious Studies, he teaches courses in Old Testament, Hebrew, and biblical interpretation. As teaching pastor, he preaches regularly in chapel and helps coordinate chapel programming.

Brian's research interests stretch from ancient Mesopotamia to faith development among 21st century college students.
