Brent grew up in the west metro, and was blessed to have been raised in a home where God was loved and honored. He is happy to continue the heritage of active involvement in the local church, currently at Crow River Church in Delano. Brent enjoys equipping God's people for ministry, particularly in the areas of prayer, discipleship, and apologetics. Brent lives in Rockford with his wife Becky, their kids Katherine and David, and their mini schnauzer Winston. During his free time, when not at one of his kids' sporting events, Brent enjoys conversing over a cup of strong coffee.
