Brian Nanninga

Lead Pastor at LifeChurch Livonia

Brian has served in full time vocational ministry for over 20 years. Since receiving his BA from Northpark University, he has served as a youth pastor in Colorado, Alaska, and Muskegon. In 2013, Brian and Jamie felt God’s call upon their lives to be church planters. Brian met the founder of LifeChurch Canton, Alex Rahill Sr., at a church planter’s conference, and decided to become a planter in the LifeChurch family. In 2014, LifeChurch Livonia was launched. Brian’s heart is to see the gospel of Jesus Christ bring revival and reconciliation to a city that has been characterized by racial fear and cultural religion. He desires to see every person grow into the fullness of who God has made them to be.

Brian loves food, friends and a good game of disc golf. He also loves to spend time with his wife, Jamie, and their three children.
