Teaching Pastor

Brian Kohout


I was fortunate to grow up in a family that loves the Lord and exposed me to ministry early in life. My dad has been a pastor in Richmond, Va. for as long as I can remember and taught me about loving people. I met my wife, Jana, through a ministry position at Liberty University where we went to school. After getting married, we served a church as a youth pastor and then moved to Raleigh to become the Director of Spiritual Life at North Raleigh Christian Academy, where I still serve, and pursue further education at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. I was blessed to attend North Wake Church for over a decade and entered into the church planting residency there, along with our other pastor, Ed Martin. When I’m not working, you can find me somewhere outside enjoying creation with my family; Jana, Brody, Levi, and Aven.

/Hope for EC

My hope for Exchange is that we would be a people who learn to treasure and submit to Scripture; allowing it to penetrate the deepest parts of our lives while we journey together to become more like Christ.
