Initially trained as an Industrial Engineer at Penn State University, Brian now provides others with the tools to design and build churches, ministries and organizations.

Janet’s years of ministry include outreach to children and youth and a season as a missionary in Scotland with a DOVE church planting team.

Brian and Janet have five children and have been married for 32 years. They reside in Manheim, Pennsylvania. In 2008 they started a rental property business. They have discovered that in the busyness of life, a good cup of coffee, a round of golf, a fun movie or a book go a long way towards relaxing and refreshing the soul.
