Brian Tallman has been at New Life since 2002. He began attending New Life while in seminary and served our church as an intern and later as the Assistant to the Senior Pastor. In 2005, our pastor retired and Brian accepted the call to become our Senior Pastor. Prior to his time at New Life Brian served as director of the College Ministry at Jamul Community Church and as the Pastor of Lincoln Acres Community Church in National City.
He is a graduate of Bethel Seminary. He has also studied at The Master’s Seminary (2000-2001) and Westminster Seminary in California. It was during his time in Bible College that Brian was introduced to the riches of the Reformed faith by our Missionary to Uganda, Rev. David Okken. From that time he has been on the journey of learning how to apply the Scripture more faithfully and has come to love and cherish and proclaim the doctrinal truths presented in the ecumenical creeds and the Westminster Standards.
Brian is married to Andria, a graduate of Christian Heritage College (B.A. Biblical Studies, 2003) and Westminster Seminary in California (M.A. 2005) and is father of Trinity, Eden, Karsten, and Victoria
In his spare time he loves to read, hang out with his wife and children and spend time in fellowship with the saints of New Life. To view Pastor Brian’s weblog go here.
