Alongside his wife Jenn, he carries this message forward today as Senior Worship Pastor at Bethel Church and as Senior Overseer for Bethel's on-campus WorshipU summer program. Brian seeks to empower others to experience God’s kingdom and to equip worship leaders to lead people into His presence. He desires to impact a generation through praise, and see worshippers emerge who carry authenticity, authority, and release the goodness of God. Brian is a founder of Bethel Music, and has produced seven albums, which have influenced the culture of worship in many churches around the world. Brian facilitates an atmosphere of faith in worship and pursues fresh expression of God’s heart through his songwriting. He has written anthems such as “One Thing Remains,” “Love Came Down,” “You Have Won Me” & “For The Sake Of The World”. Brian enjoys his community of family and friends in Redding, California with his wife Jenn and their three children.
