Hi! I'm your host, Brian.

I've been pastoring for over 20 years, and have experienced the effects of spiritual abuse and religious trauma in three different environments.

As the founder of Broken to Beloved, I'm committed to providing practical tools that move us toward healing and wholeness, and to provide trauma-informed resources and safeguarding practices to help prevent future abuse from taking place in our churches and organizations.

I'm honored to host this new event, and to meet you as we partner together to create safe spaces for those who have experienced abuse and trauma in their own lives. God calls the broken to himself and sees them as Beloved. Let's learn to do the same. Together.
