Pastor Brian Osborne

Associate Pastor / Worship Pastor


 

Born and raised in Ravenswood, WV, Brian attended a local Baptist church for much of his young life. At the age of 17 he re-committed his life to Christ while singing as a part of the Young Believers, a multi-church youth choir ministry based in Goldtown, WV. At that same time, a strong desire to use music as a tool of ministry began to grow within his life. 

Brian attended Anderson University in Anderson, IN, graduating in 1993 with a major in Music Business and a minor in Christian Ministries. During his time at Anderson, he had the opportunity to work with numerous Christian artists on stage and in the recording studio. It was also during his college years that he was introduced to the Assemblies of God. Brian was the stage manager of the campus auditorium and the Indiana District AG Youth Convention would rent the facility each year during Thanksgiving break. Those early experiences with Pentecostal worship led him to join an A-G church when he graduated from college.

From the early 90’s, Brian began leading worship in the churches he attended and also working with youth. He served as the worship leader for Bethel Assembly of God in Huntington, IN, for six years before moving to central Ohio. He attended Northwest Assembly of God in Dublin, the church his wife had attended for a number of years. Following a call on his life to worship and to teach worshipers, in 2001 he was credentialed with the Assemblies of God. In late 2002 he began attending Harvest and started serving on the worship team. He was officially brought on staff in December 2004. His desire is to have the heart of David, being willing to worship no matter what the circumstance and encouraging the body to do the same.

Brian and his wife Traci met in college, but it was an interesting series of events that brought them together a few years after graduation. He will gladly tell you the story if you ask him. They were married in 1999. They have two children, Ben and Megan.
