Brief Bio: Brian Hindman was born in Virginia but grew up all over North and South Carolina as a pastor’s kid. He attended Southern Adventist University and initially studied Theology before graduating with a degree in Religious Education. After graduating he taught Bible and History at Georgia-Cumberland Academy and Mount Pisgah Academy for a total of 18 years. While teaching Bible classes at MPA Brian became convicted that he wanted to serve the Lord in full time pastoral ministry–if it was God’s will for him to do so.
After having this conviction for several years he finally resigned his job as a teacher in 2015 and enrolled in Amazing Facts evangelism training program in Sacramento, CA. While at Amazing Facts, Brian received a call to serve as the Associate Pastor of the Hendersonville SDA Church in Hendersonville, NC. For the past 3 1/2 years Brian has had the privilege of serving as a pastor there and enjoys preaching, teaching, and studying with both members and new Bible study interests alike. He has been married to his beautiful wife Teresa for almost 22 years and they have one son, Jacob, who is attending Weimar Institute. Brian believes that Jesus is coming very soon and He wants everyone to be ready to meet the Lord—especially our youth and young people!!
