OUR LEADERSHIP & STAFF

Brian Steadman, Interim Pastor

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. From October of 2012 until September of 2015, Brian focused on Hurricane Sandy recovery as Director of Resurrection Brooklyn Relief. As Sandy recovery ministry came to a close, a new chapter began with the launch of a new worshipping community in and for the neighborhood. Resurrection Sheepshead Bay held its first public worship service on November 22, 2015. Brian returned to Resurrection Park Slope to serve as Interim Pastor in 2021.

 

The Steadmans enjoy hiking, college football, Marine Park, grilled meat, and still find it impossible to keep up with the list of Brooklyn restaurants they want to try. They take every opportunity to cheer on their local team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, and are eagerly awaiting the New York Rangers to bring The Cup back to NYC.
