BRYAN GLASS, Lead Pastor
Bryan considers it a blessing to be part of the Berean Family and is so excited to see the passion for God, love for God’s Word, and the loving relationships that are part of this body. Bryan and his wife Kristin are both committed to seeing people of all ages and stages transformed by the Gospel. They are also the proud parents of three children named Gloria, Julia, and Noah. Bryan has received his THM in Bible Exposition from Dallas Theological Seminary. He also graduated from LSU and promises to cheer for the UT Vols just as long as they are not playing the Tigers. Bryan’s hope for Berean is that we would be a church that is gripped by the glory of God, saturated by the Word of God, and continually transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ while also reaching all of Knoxville and the world with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ.
TJ is an East Tennessee boy and is thrilled to be back home in Knoxville. He has spent the last four years as a student pastor in South Mississippi and did several internships in Knoxville before his time here. He graduated from Liberty University with a B.S. in Religion and is currently studying for his M.Div. in Theology at Liberty as well. He has been married to Rachel since 2013, and she is a vital part of his ministry at BBC. They have two small children. TJ has a strong passion for Student Ministry and has a desire to see every teen in Knox County come to find a relationship in Jesus. We are all Vol and want nothing to do with Bryan’s silly Tigers. TJ and Rachel love sports and the outdoors and make it a mission to have fun daily. TJ prays that the student ministry would follow after the mission of the church and develop devoted followers of Jesus Christ who demonstrate and declare the life-transforming power of the Gospel.
