Man in the Mirror Faculty
Pete has been involved in developing men for more than 30 years, helping guys come to understand who they are in Christ as redeemed and beloved sons of the Most High God, and how the Father is willing to invest Himself in developing them every day of their lives. Pete is committed to building great men as God defines greatness and to leave no man behind on the battlefield of life. He loves to teach how God’s grace energizes men to grow into real manhood.
A Californian, Pete has served churches in California, Illinois, Connecticut, and Florida. He founded a PCA church in Winter Springs, Florida, where he served for 26 years as Senior Pastor. He is a graduate of Biola University with a degree in Communications, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (M.Div), and Reformed Theological Seminary (D. Min) in Oviedo, Florida.

Family is Pete’s claim to fame. Married to Caron for 35+ years, they have three children — Joel (and beloved daughter-in-law Aly with grandchildren Maggie, Molly, and Wyatt), Jon (and beloved daughter-in-law Sandra with grandchildren Ansley and Easton), and daughter Jessie. He knows he “married up” and loves to speak to men about his successes as well as his failures as a husband and dad. Pete’s style combines openness, humor, great stories, and strong Bible teaching as he easily connects with men.

Brett joined Man in the Mirror in 2000 and currently serves as President. His passion is to make the church relevant to younger men and men on the fringe. He breaks through the resistance that many men feel towards spiritual topics with his use of personal stories and humor.
Brett’s role at Man in the Mirror includes providing leadership to the ministry, speaking at men’s events, training leaders, writing, and more. He is the co-author with Patrick Morley and David Delk of No Man Left Behind: How to Build and Sustain a Thriving Disciple-Making Ministry for Every Man in Your Church, and various articles and discipleship materials offered by the ministry.

“Men are struggling,” shares Brett. “I’ve had the opportunity to speak to men literally around the world. You know what? Most men struggle with the same things. They want to do it all on their own. Like Habakkuk says, ‘We worship our own strength.’ Unfortunately, it often takes a crisis to help men realize they need the love, grace and power of Christ to become the men they somehow sense they were made to be.”
Brett and his wife Kimberly live in Casselberry, Florida. They have been married since 1991 and have two adult children, Cassidy and Jackson. His interests include dates with his wife, coaching rock climbing, and home improvement projects.
