Senior Pastor 

Rev. Dr.Brian Janssen

The Rev. Dr. Brian Janssen, better known as Pastor Brian or PBJ, comes to us with nearly fifteen years of experience in ordained ministry. Brian began ministry in Harrisburg and has spent the past 12 years at Heritage Presbyterian Church in the North Hills of Pittsburgh. He 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 Wexford, PA. Rest assured, they are looking forward to crossing rivers and bridges soon as they look for a new home close to Bethany Church.

Brian and Lisa are excited to begin a new chapter in ministry and in their lives at Bethany Presbyterian Church. The call of God has been made readily apparent in all of 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. It was important to Brian to find a call where the people were friendly and passionate about sharing the love of Jesus with their neighbors.

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.
