Brian Steadman and his wife Jessie were born and raised in Alabama and Florida, respectively. After marrying in 2000, they moved to Austin, Texas, where their love for and enjoyment of cities ﬁrst took root. This desire to live and serve in an urban setting continued to grow the years they spent in St. Louis, where Brian completed his MDiv. Upon completion of seminary, the opportunity to serve as church planting intern for Resurrection Park Slope became the perfect next step for them following graduation. Brian and Jessie, with their children Georgia and Eben, moved to Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn in 2008. They welcomed Claire, their third child and a native New Yorker, in 2009. Brian also began serving as an assistant pastor later that same year. Since Hurricane Sandy hit NYC in October of 2012, Brian’s pastoral role has focused on Sandy relief.
The Steadmans enjoy camping, hiking, fishing, any game involving a ball, Marine Park, dark chocolate, and rye whiskey. They have found it impossible to keep up with the list of Brooklyn restaurants they want to try. Brian is a huge baseball fan, but will leave his team unnamed. On any given summer evening, however, you may ﬁnd their whole family in Coney Island cheering for the Brooklyn Cyclones.
