Brian and his wife Andrea have been involved with Vineyard churches since the late 90’s. In 1998, they helped start a Vineyard Church in Cedar Rapids, IA before moving to Mankato, MN in 2003 to plant Two Rivers Vineyard Church. At the beginning of 2017, they transitioned the church in Mankato to new lead pastors and began a new season of ministry here in Duluth.
At the Duluth Vineyard, Brian provides leadership for our small groups, men’s ministry, and pastoral care systems, as well as serving on our Senior Leadership Team. Brian’s passion is to help people discover who God has made them and what He has made them for. He especially loves seeing new leaders step into God’s calling for their lives.
In their spare time, the Brinkert family loves to camp, hike and play board games. Brian also enjoys playing golf and cheering for the Minnesota Twins.
