After receiving his call, Brett served as Children's Pastor for six years at Clarksville First Church of the Nazarene. In 2007 he and his family moved to Cape May, NJ  to serve as Children's Pastor of Seashore Community Church of the Nazarene. Brett came full circle four years later as his family relocated to the west side of Evansville and he accepted the position of Senior Pastor at Grace Church of the Nazarene. Brett loves his family, all things football (go Titans!), and living within walking distance of the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival.
