Pastor Bryan Strickland

Pastor Bryan and Brooke were married August 6, 2011 at Mount Carmel Church of God of Prophecy, Brooke’s home Church. Bryan and Brooke have two children, Bentley N. (born April 28, 2015) and Brody N. (December 4, 2017).

Pastor Bryan felt the “call” to preach and was licensed at Freedom Baptist Church in November 2012. He was led to Parkersburg Baptist Church in March 2013 and Pastored until July 2016. He was then led to the Church of God, his "home roots.” Pastor Bryan went to Pastor Roseboro Church of God in July 2016 where he felt he was sent with a vision of restoration. After feeling the peace of God that the work was complete, Pastor Bryan completed this tenure July 21, 2019.

Finishing his 7th year of ministry, Pastor Bryan has been led to Pastor Mount Carmel Church of God of Prophecy. Pastor Bryan repeatedly heard the Word of God spoke in his heart from 1 Kings 18:41-44 and Pastor Bryan feels that going into his 8th year (time) that God is going to rain down on his ministry and begin to see miraculous happenings for the Kingdom of God.

Humbly and reverently, Pastor Bryan’s mission statement comes from God’s Word: Ezekiel 33:1-11; 1 Corinthians 9:16; 2 Corinthians 4:3-5; Matthew 28:18-20. “God has called me, not man. God has appointed me as a watchman to preach unto my heart and the people, ‘Why will ye die when God offers life through His Son, Jesus?’ Woe is me if I preach not the gospel for I must preach Jesus and not myself. I refuse to let this Glorious Gospel be hid. Jesus said ‘Go’ for He is with me always.”

Pastor Bryan comes to Mount Carmel Church of God of Prophecy with the vision of retirement and looks forward to God’s future plans for his family, his ministry, and for this Church!
