Our Leadership

Meet Our Pastor

Brian Ingraham has been serving in church ministry for about 20 years.  Recently, God called Pastor Brian to Baleville Church to be our senior pastor.

Brian’s desire is to help people, through the leading of the Holy Spirit, to take their next steps in their relationship with Christ.  His passion is to see people love and understand God’s Word, genuinely living out their faith as they see their purpose within the body of Christ.  He sees the critical need for the church to go beyond its walls, where it can meet tangible needs and point people to Jesus.

Brian grew up in Bergen County, NJ and met his wife Bonnie at Philadelphia College of Bible.  He and Bonnie have been married for 20 years, and have been blessed with 5 children.
