Shortly after returning to America, they got married and moved to North Carolina. Brian became an intern at Providence in 1998 while attending Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Upon graduating with a Master of Divinity degree, Brian became a pastor at Providence. In 2016, he became Senior Pastor when our founding pastor, David Horner, retired.
