Our Ministry Team
Pastor Bryan joined the staff of Sun Coast Baptist Church in 2002, when he began working with the teen ministry on a part-time basis while he finished his senior year of college. After graduation, he served as youth director until 2005 when the church called him to the role of senior pastor.
While pursuing a science degree at Clearwater Christian College, Pastor Bryan experienced a growing desire to serve God in full-time Christian ministry. He enrolled in the Bible program at Clearwater and graduated in 2003 with a B.A. in Bible. He also met his wife, Amy, at Clearwater, and they were married in 2002. They now have four children who keep life exciting. When he’s able to grab a few spare moments, Pastor Bryan enjoys coaching Little League baseball, traveling with his family, and tinkering with his camera.
Pastor Bryan believes the Bible should impact every aspect of the Christian’s life, and he is committed to helping people understand the truth of God’s Word through expository preaching and teaching. He loves to see God’s work accomplished through His power as He uses willing vessels for His glory (II Corinthians 12:9-10).
Brenda Johns serves as the secretary for Sun Coast Baptist Church. She has been involved in various roles with the church since 2011. Brenda accepted Christ as her Savior as a young adult and she has faithfully invested her time and energy in programs like AWANA, choir, VBS, and missions ever since. Brenda and her husband, Sam, have a daughter and two grandsons they love to visit as often as they can. In her free time, Brenda likes to enjoy the outdoors, relax with a good book, or play games with friends. Her favorite verse is II Corinthians 12:9: “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
