Many churches have lists of programs to help you connect with others in the congregation. You won’t find much of that here. Instead, we are an unapologetically relationship-driven church. If you ask “how do I get involved,” we won’t point you to programs but people. In the links to the right, you'll find the main ways that we encourage newcomers to connect with the people of CHBC, as we seek to live out the relational model of the New Testament church.
Brent was raised by Christian parents who demonstrated the gospel, discipleship, and the importance of missions and the local church. Raised in Miami, OK, Brent graduated from Baylor in 1993 and the Univ. of Tulsa College of Law in 1996, where he met his wife Tracey through the Baptist Student Union. After law school, Brent served as a U.S. Air Force Judge Advocate until his military retirement in 2014. Throughout his military career, Brent lived and worked in 22 foreign countries and spanned the U.S. from Alaska to New Hampshire all the while seeing God’s kindness through the local Body of Christ in each location sustaining he and his family through deployments, hardships, and times of joy. Brent now serves as in-house counsel for a multi-national corporation. Brent and Tracey have two elementary aged children, live in Burke, VA, and spend most of their extra time between soccer, baseball, tennis lessons, and breakfast with the singles of CHBC.
