Bryan grew up in Blanchester, Ohio where his grandfather, James Gardner, was his pastor and mentor for almost 30 years. He graduated from Blanchester High School and attended the University of Cincinnati. He began serving in Christian Education in youth and children's ministries in 1987. Bryan and his family have attended BBC since 2006, where he began serving as a Deacon in 2007. He later felt the call of the Lord on his life and surrendered to full-time ministry, and started on staff at BBC in June 2014. Bryan has a passion for gospel music and serves in the choir and special music. In 2017 he was appointed by Sheriff Fizer, Jr. as the Chaplain for the Clinton County Sheriff's Office.
He and his wife, Denette, live in Wilmington. They have two daughters, Kirsten (Bennie) Guardado, and Kinsey. Bryan loves his family, his pastor and church family, and he loves the Lord. He is humbled, yet excited, to be a part of the BBC Staff.
