Dr. Brian C OglesbeePastor
I thank God everyday that he has given me the opportunity to shepherd this amazing group of Christ-followers here at Norwalk First U.M.C. It is a privilege and honor to serve this church and this community. The Bible passage that became a turning point in my transition from a career in public education into that of ministry is Philippians 2:5-11, especially verse 5 – “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.”
In my spare time, I enjoy sitting down with a good non-fiction book, working out three times a week at Anytime Fitness with my fitness trainer, learning to operate all the new electronic gadgets, and spending time with my parents, my sister, my daughters Elizabeth and Mary, and my grandchildren, Cohen, Kaiden, and Lily. And by the way, the congregation knows that I detest lima beans!
