Brian Russo | Pastor
Brian has served the Presbyterian Church (USA) since 2009, after he graduated with a Masters of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary. In November of 2022 Brian was called by Grace to become our Senior Pastor and Head of Staff, and in January of 2023 he began his ministry with us.
Brian believes that faith must be lived in relationship to others in order for it to be alive and at work. That means we must risk being vulnerable and learn to love even where there are differences. Believing the Church should dare to ask the big questions, engaging the world rather than condemning it, his educational platforms and preaching style operate on this premise.
Brian comes to us from Doylestown, PA, with his wife Anya and his son Seth. As a family they share passions for new culinary experiences and imaginative adventures. As for himself, Brian enjoys listening to Radiohead, taking pictures, and writing satire.
If Brian could be anywhere in the world, he would be back in Florence, Italy where he studied abroad.
