Brian Crisman is passionate about worshipping Almighty God and leading others to do the same. He surrendered to the call to ministry at an early age and, since the combination of music and ministry has reached the third generation in the Crisman family through Brian, music was the natural ministry path laid out by the Lord. A trumpet player by trade, Brian entered the ministry in 1994 as a music intern and orchestra director. In 2001, he filled an interim worship pastor position in Louisville, Kentucky which eventually led to a full-time call by the same church. Since that time, he has served as worship pastor for churches in Kentucky, Arkansas, and Alabama. Brian, his wife Sonya, and their children, Victoria, Emma, Brotey, Kate, and Ellie have served God at Lynwood since August 2010.
Brian earned a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from the University of Mobile in Mobile, AL in 1997 and a Masters in Church Music from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY in 2002.
