“Cookson Hills Christian School has a mission statement that allows me to work with young people the way God has designed me, using the skills with which he has equipped me. I love my students and want them to see the best in themselves–the person God intends them to be.”
Brian had a knowledge of Cookson Hills from way back in the 1980’s, but at a pretty limited level. His first real contact with the ministry came when he was looking for a school that would allow him to incorporate his unique teaching style and his youth ministry skills. Brian joined the team as a 4th & 5th grade teacher in 2018. Brian has a Bachelor of Science in Christian Education from St. Louis Christian College and Elementary Teaching Certification from Central Methodist University. He and his wife, Janet, have two grown children, Jenna, who married Luke, and Brandon, who married Britta, and gave him two beautiful grandchildren-Beckett and Rosie. He is proud that both Brandon and Luke, and their families, are ministers to youth in their local congregations. If you cannot find this teacher with the beach-bum hair at the school, chances are he is hiking the creek beds and trails on campus, riding his bike, creating art and accessories out of repurposed materials, or spending time with friends.
