Brian Stanley

Associate Pastor for Worship & Education

At North Clay, we try to center everything we do on God's Word.  In the songs we sing, we strive to worship with lyrics that are faithful to the Bible, if not quoted directly from Scripture, while passionately praising our Lord.  We invite you to join us in worship by participating in the North Clay Choir, Praise Band, Kids' Choir, or as a member of the congregation.

Our Educational Ministries include multiple opportunities for Bible Study.  You can check out our home page to find an ongoing study you'd like to join.  There are multiple opportunities for discipleship every week for every age group.

Brian Stanley leads worship, directs our Choir, teaches, and coordinates our Education Ministries.  Looking for a place to serve?  Contact Brian at Brian.Stanley@NorthClay.org.
