Our Staff

  • Bryan Dever


    As Zion’s pastor, Bryan believes that “a relationship with God by faith in Christ is personal, but it’s not private. God designed us to need each other, to help each other in accomplishing his mission in the world.”

    Bryan met his wife Janice (Rohland) while serving as Zion’s Youth Pastor from 1981-1983. They were married in 1983 and have a married daughter and twin granddaughters. Bryan enjoys reading (especially good Sci-Fi and fantasy), gardening, and spending time with his family.
