Brian Work

Pastor of Student Ministry – Vermilion Campus

Brian is the Pastor of Student Ministry in Vermilion, hired in 2018, the week after Easter.

He grew up in a Christian household but walked away from Christ in college. Eventually, God grabbed a hold of Brian and gave him an amazing opportunity to intern at a church in Memphis, Tennessee. After about a week of working as a student ministry intern, he heard God’s calling for his life. After that, he worked at his home church for about two and a half years as their Student Ministry Pastor. Brian has a degree in psychology and got an opportunity to be a resident with Grace Church in Middleburg Heights. During that time, he met his wife, Krista, and got married. they moved to Williston, North Dakota, and Brian became the Student Ministry Pastor there. They got their dog, an Australian Shepherd named Gus, there. Brian also has a Masters in Science in Mental Health and Wellness with an emphasis in Family Dynamics.

God then called them out of North Dakota and back home. Ever since then, they have been blessed to call Open Door home.

Brian and Krista have a child, Russell.

He loves to play sports, listen to music and play board games with his family.
