Meet some of the people who make up Believers in Christ Church.
Brian Casale, Senior Pastor
Brian has been following Jesus since he was 9. In his teen years, he felt a pastoral call and has been pastoring since he was 19. Brian has been married to his wife, Jane, for 30+ years. Brian is passionate about leadership development and seeing Christians mature in their faith. Brian enjoys a variety of things: musicals, the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes, all things Star Wars, traveling with his wife, and spending time with his son and daughter-in-law. Brian loves Jesus and wants everyone to join!
Anthony Snively, Associate Pastor
Anthony started following Jesus in his senior year of college after reading through the Gospel of Matthew with his girlfriend (now wife), Katlyn. He’s passionate about spiritual formation, teaching, and advocating for children everywhere – whether at his day job at Compassion or hosting kids through Safe Families for Children. Anthony and Katlyn have a curious daughter, Piper, and another on the way. Together, they enjoy hiking, bike rides, dance parties, reading, anything Lord of the Rings related, and keeping the Sabbath fun.
Kayla Lehman, Worship Leader
Kayla is very thankful for her parents who guided her faith in her early years. It wasn’t until college that her relationship with Jesus truly became her own. Her faith was renewed as she chose to pursue a life devoted to Him. She loves serving others and helping out in any way she can. She has a special love for music and loves to spend time in worship singing. Kayla and her husband, Ben, enjoy all things sports, hiking, spending time with family and going to the beach.
Jeff Stern, Missions Director
Jeff grew up in the church but he became a serious Jesus follower in his 20’s. He has a heart for service, generosity, and vulnerable children. He has been married to his wife, Elaine, for over 30 years. Together, they have 8 children – 3 biological and 5 adopted. Jeff owns several local businesses. In his downtime, he can be found watching the Dallas Cowboys or spending time outside with his kids.
