About Mr. Trainer

Brian Trainer came to Maranatha in the fall of 2006. He served 10 years in pastoral ministry as a church planter and on the staff of a church in Virginia.  His second love is cross-cultural ministry. Mr. Trainer has led multiple mission trips every summer and has traveled or taught in more than 30 countries.

What Mr. Trainer loves about teaching at Maranatha

“I was saved as a freshman in college. Every major spiritual and personal decision in life was made during my undergraduate and graduate training. Much of my guidance during those years was given via direct teaching or the example of my professors. I view my opportunity of teach at Maranatha as an opportunity to continue that impact on the next generation of Christian leaders. I am particularly focused on seeing this generation extend their vision beyond the borders of the United States.”


“My wife and I are avid cyclists and hikers, and we love the outdoors. I also travel throughout the world, teaching or taking students for educational or internship experiences.”


“In ministry, I believe the greatest privilege I have been given is working with good mentors. I have had the joy of 10 years of pastoral ministry as a senior and associate pastor. These years were invaluable in my personal spiritual growth. The men that I worked with still impact my life and thinking. Those years combined with  my years in higher education and multiple trips to foreign fields are the foundation on which I now am continuing to build.”
