Brent was raised in Sutherlin, Oregon. He began following Christ as a junior in high school, which is also when he met his wife, Phylicia, and they married in 2006. He served in both youth and children’s ministries at a church in the area for eight years before joining the Redeemer’s staff in March of 2016. He loves showing kids, and really everyone, that following Jesus is the best adventure that anyone could go on. In 2013 he graduated from Moody Bible Institute. Brent and Phylicia have three wild and crazy sons: Oscar, Abraham, and Arrow. He is a big fan of the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Blackhawks, and loves playing board games.
