Brian Hanks

Lay Elder

Brian began attending Blue Valley in 2001 and became a member in 2002 with his wife Erin shortly after they were married. Brian surrendered to follow Jesus as Savior at the age of 7 while attending Tyler Road Southern Baptist Church in Wichita, but points to a time in his early twenties when he began earnestly committing to his faith. While at Blue Valley, he has served as a Sunday School teacher to preschoolers, students, and adults and has also served as a deacon. Brian recently graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Theological Studies; a degree he began pursuing while considering a call to missions. Though an opportunity to serve overseas never materialized as they had hoped, the Hanks have engaged in missions locally through Mission Adelante. Brian works as a Lead Environmental Engineer at Foth Infrastructure and Environment and attends the Antioch Campus. He is married to Erin and has four children: Aidan (13), Ella (11), and twins, Liam and Reese (8).
