Brian Powell

Pastor of Vision

Brian was born and raised in the deep South, splitting his childhood between Georgia and South Carolina. When he heard the Gospel as a pre-teen, he repented and believed in Christ. He became serious about his faith in middle school, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with friends and classmates. As he consistently saw and heard the faithful preaching of his pastor in Columbia, he began to feel a strong, growing desire to preach to and teach God’s people. This call to ministry intensified during multiple overseas mission trips and his leading community groups after college. In 2010, he and his family moved to Louisville, KY to pursue theological education, where Brian completed his Master’s and PhD degrees at Southern Seminary. He currently serves as the Pastor of Vision at Holy City Church.

Brian is married to Elise, has 6 children, and loves the Clemson Tigers.
