Pastor & LeAD Elder
Despite seasons in Idaho and a deployment to Iraq, Utah has been Bryan's 'home' since 1998. He holds two Associate Degrees from the College of Southern Idaho, a Bachelor's from the University of Utah, a Master's of Divinity from Liberty University, and a Doctorate of Ministry from Gateway Seminary. Bryan keeps a personal website at SaltyBeliever.com. You may also sign up to receive Pastor Bryan's, “[R] Prayer Partner Update Email” and join us in prayer.
In 1998 Lisa and Bryan were married. They have boys: Asher, Daniel, and Titus, and a daughter, Lydia.
Dave was born in Dallas, lived in Oakland, CA for five years and has been living in Salt Lake since he came to know Christ at eight years old.
David’s focus is to be a positive support for the Redeeming Life ministry staff and the larger church body. David is on loan to us from our sending church, Risen Life. We’re thankful for the support of our sending church to pay Dave’s salary.
Before serving ministry staff, David was employed as a CFO and controller for various companies in the Salt Lake Valley since 1986.
He and his wife, Tina, have been married since 1986 and have two sons, Jeremy and Taylor.
We believe in a plurality of Elders. Pastor Bryan is our lead Elder and we have three borrowed Elders from our sending church, Risen Life. They are Kevin Lund, Robert Marshall, and Glen Apgar. In addition, we also have a group of deacon who serve at Redeeming Life and lead through their service. And finally, we utilize a Church Leadership Team (CLT) made up of lay people from the body, affirmed by the members, to serve in an advisory role with the Elders.
