Brian Drinkwine has been pastoring for more than twenty years and arrived in Corona with a vision to start a church for people who are worn out by life and burned out on religion. He has been married to his wife, Sarah, for 15 years and they have two daughters and a dog. Brian and Sarah met in Nashville when she came to pursue the music industry (yes, he married a rock star) and they are passionate about one thing: seeing people experience breakthrough in their hearts, relationships, and every area of their lives.


Prior to moving to Corona, Brian planted a network of house churches in Nashville, Tennessee, and spent more than 15 years in youth ministry. His higher education focused on ancient languages and Christian Leadership. Additionally, Brian has completed a two year graduate church planting cohort through V3 Movement and was a Planter in Residence for one year through the TRAIN church planting residency. Brian is a certified leadership coach, Ridley church planting assessor, and founder of Youth Leader Academy, an online learning experience for current and aspiring youth ministry leaders.
