Soon after, he and Jeff began to evangelize using Ray Comfort’s ‘Way Of The Master’ technique, doing fair and carnival evangelism. In 2007 Brian moved to Temecula, California, and plugged into CCTV as the worship drummer.
He re-enlisted in the Army in 2008, where he went on to serve in the Active and Reserve components. Brian was reassigned to Fort Hood, Texas, where he immediately began to attend Calvary Fellowship of Bell County.
