Brian Raby


Elder/Pastor of Discipleship

After many years of claiming to be a Christian Brian realized through God’s grace that he needed a Saviour. Brian turned to Jesus confessing Him as Lord and Saviour and since that point his desire to know Christ more and share Him with others has been ever increasing.

Brian is a graduate of The Master’s Seminary. While earning his Masters of Divinity he worked as an intern at Grace Community Church and he also spent time serving in the Children’s Ministry as well as the College and Career Ministry.

In the fall of 2011 Brian married Polly. The two met at a home Bible study in California—Polly coming earlier from Colorado, and Brian from Pickering, Ontario. Brian and Polly are delighted to be parents of Meredith and Luke.

Brian’s passion is simply this: transformed lives for the glory of God. To see God’s purpose for His creation—comprehensive worship of Him—realized in every individual is Brian’s aim. “Him we proclaim” says the Apostle Paul, “warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me” (Col 1:28-29). Brian’s prayer for Harvest Durham is that these words would be true of us too.
