Bryan is a pastor, writer, and pub theologian, and author of the book, Pub Theology: Beer, Conversation, and God. He insists that good things happen when we sit around the table together and talk about things that matter, and what better setting than at the pub, over a beer. Bryan currently facilitates weekly conversations at a bar in the Adams Morgan neighborhood of Washington, DC.
Bryan and his wife, Christy, are gathering a new faith community called Roots DC — an urban faith community seeking to follow Jesus for the good of the city, where loving our neighbors takes priority over having all the answers. Bryan was the founder of Watershed in Traverse City, MI — a hub of creative, broken people seeking simplicity, depth, and authenticity. Bryan’s writings have appeared in the Huffington Post, Sojourners, and Patheos, among other places.
Pub Theology – The Book: From London to New York to Ann Arbor, people are gathering to communicate, connect and learn from one another over the topic of religion, of all things. In Pub Theology, Bryan draws from his own experience in one such setting, contending that for too long the church has insisted on setting its own terms on how one can find and encounter God. Yet what if God is to be found in places we haven’t been looking at all? Order here!
