Senior Pastor 

Rev. Dr.Brian Janssen

The Rev. Dr. Brian Janssen, better known as Pastor Brian or PBJ, began his ministry here at Bethany in January of 2020. Having previously served churches in Harrisburg, and the North Hills of Pittsburgh. Brian has a heart for the church and God’s people, and is excited to see what God is up to here in Bridgeville. “As we get to know our neighborhood, we will begin to see what God is doing there and join Him in that work.” The call of God has been made readily apparent in all the conversations with the PNC and Brian is looking forward to getting to know the congregation, engaging in ministry and mission, and begin prayerfully discerning with the church the direction God is calling us as we move into His future.
Brian is married to his amazing wife Lisa who works in finance for American Eagle Outfitters. Together they have a dog named Buddy and currently reside in Upper St. Clair. Brian and Lisa love traveling, spending time with family, exploring the amazing city of Pittsburgh, and rooting for the Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins. They can’t wait to begin ministry at Bethany and look forward to meeting you all and sharing the love of Jesus with people in Bridgeville, and around the world.
Brian is in the office most days when he is not out visiting parishioners or learning more about the neighborhood. You should always feel free to stop by and say hello, have a conversation, a time of prayer, and a cup of coffee, but  not necessarily in that order.
