Meet our Pastor
The Rev. Brian F. Shirey has been the pastor of Brighton Heights Lutheran Church since 1995. Before coming to Brighton Heights Lutheran Church, Pastor Shirey had served in rural, small town and suburban congregations. But it was in an urban setting that he really found his place. He plans to live in Brighton Heights the rest of his life.
Ordained in 1979, Pastor Shirey is a graduate of Thiel College and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. He, and his wife Debora, both grew up in the Ligonier Valley in neighboring Westmoreland County. They have been married since 1974. They have lived in Brighton Heights since 1995. Their two grown sons live nearby.
Pastor Shirey is committed to the mission and fellowship of Brighton Heights Lutheran Church. He is also committed to the Brighton Heights community and has been active in this community the entire time he has been at Brighton Heights Lutheran Church.
