Bryan Moak - Vice President of Church Strengthening 

Favorite Verse: “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another – and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”

Family:  In 1990, I married my wife Kristin. We have two adult children, our son Taylor and daughter in law Emily who live in the Twin Cities, and our daughter Kyra, who is a senior at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire where she studies music education.  When not doing ministry, I love working on my lawn, going out to eat at cool restaurants with my wife, and cheering for the Minnesota Wild hockey team and the Green Bay Packers.

Favorite Verse: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?" Matthew 6:25-27
