Born in Denver, Colorado and raised more or less in the city of Lakewood, Briana actually attended the Lakewood Church of Christ as a child for 7 years. She has always loved the church family at Lakewood, and is honored to now serve on the ministry team as a Youth Pastor. Briana graduated from Colorado Christian University with a B.S. in Psychology, and has served as a Youth Pastor for over ten years. Her mission is to partner with parents and teens to develop a lasting and transforming relationship with our almighty God!
One of the best parts about Briana’s job is that she gets to do it with her husband, Adam Patterson. Married for 9 years, Adam and Briana have served as youth ministers together for almost their entire marriage. They have two children, Ryker and Creed, and love involving the entire family in their ministry.
In her spare time Briana likes to be run, hike, read and drink coffee! She is grateful daily for the opportunity she has to serve at the Lakewood Church of Christ, with a body of people who are authentic and passionately pursuing their relationships with Christ.
