Coming from Pennsylvania with his wife Bonnie and four kids, Brent joined Grace in 2015 as the strategy and vision overseer. He was attracted to Grace because of its simple yet powerful message and its dedication to the community and ministries. Brent is known as a lover of camping and books, and it is also not uncommon to see him walking around daily with energy drink in hand.
