Dr. Brisben enjoys experiencing the pleasure of God in his creation. As an outdoor enthusiast, he loves hiking the trails and fishing the streams of the Blue Ridge Mountains in his home state of North Carolina. He also shares God’s delight in culture, watching movies, listening to “oldie goldies”, and ballroom dancing with his wife Susan. And he loves a good story, but his favorite is God’s story told in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. This last passion fits his vocational calling which is to teach students what it means to enter and live in God’s story. 

Fun facts:

Dr. Brisben was a really bad long-board surfer during his high school years (a long, long time ago!).

Dr. Brisben joined the “Jesus People” during his college years.
