Meet The Leader
Bryan took his SBS in Kona in 1996, and has been staffing and leading SBS’s since 2001. Throughout this time, he has taught in many different countries, spanning every continent in the world (but not yet Antarctica). His extensive experience in leading SBS’s has equipped him to not only train and equip you in the Word of God, but will help to disciple and empower you to fulfill God’s calling in your life. He is passionate for the Word of God, and has trained up literally hundreds of students who are currently serving all over the world. He brings with him an experienced staff, who will help you to become an effective disciple of Christ, and launch you to “go and make disciples of all nations”. (Matthew 28:19)
Bryan met his wife KJ while staffing SBS together in Kona, in 2001. They quickly became best friends, and got married in 2010. They welcomed their baby daughter into the world in June, 2015. KJ works with JUSTICEWATER, which is a ministry of YWAM, focused on bringing clean water to developing countries around the world.

Upon completion of the CSBS, and after a focused training time, we will offer an optional outreach where students can pass on what they have learned over the past nine months. Outreaches are focused on teaching effective Bible study habits, Bible overview, and books of the Bible to new believers and hungry Christians in East Asia, where Biblical Training is not easily accessible.
