Brian was one of the godliest servants I've ever known. His compassion for hurting souls was obvious to anyone who knew him. He was an extremely effective marriage and family counselor, education minister, and disciple-maker. One of my strongest memories of Brian relates to the Men's Bible Study I taught at Park Cities early on Thursday mornings. Brian always brought breakfast for the men, getting up at 5 AM so he could go to a particular donut shop where he had developed a friendship with a non-Christian working there.
He was a passionate lover of God, deeply invested in spiritual discipline and thoughtful spirituality. Brian also invested deeply in the lives entrusted to his ministry—it's remarkable how many are saying this week, "He was my best friend." His grace was unconditional, his friendship absolute.
Brian's memorial service is July 26 at 2 PM. Please join me in praying for his family and all of us who miss him so much. Our gratitude echoes Jesus' affirmation for his devoted disciple: "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
