About the Shepherd

I’m Dr. Bryan Hult and I love studying the Bible and helping people become disciples.  I pastored for over 27 years in Minneapolis and Indianapolis and have watched churches grow both numerically and spiritually.  It is a privilege and honor to do what I love everyday, serve my Lord and Savior!

I grew up in White Bear Lake Minnesota surrounded by lakes.  My childhood was spent in a variety of lake activities: swimming, sailing, canoeing and fishing.   I came to know Jesus as my personal Savior at a high school church camp. While studying chemistry at the University of Minnesota, God called me into ministry.  I took a detour before seminary, as a soldier in the US Army, serving as an infantryman, aviator, and after seminary, a chaplain in the Indiana National Guard.  My final assignment was as the Assistant to the Chief of Chaplains, ARNG, where I had responsibility to oversee chaplains in all 50 states and territories.

My education includes:

  • Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, IL, Doctor of Ministry, Pastoral Studies, 2002
  • U.S. Army War College,  Carlisle, PA, Master of Strategic Studies, 2004
  • Western Seminary, Portland, OR, Master of Divinity, Pastoral Studies, 1986, Master of Theology, Old Testament Studies, 1987
  • University of Minnesota,  Minneapolis, MN, Bachelor of Arts, History and Chemistry, 1978

I am married to the best partner in ministry a guy could ever have.  Barbara and I have one daughter, Katy, son-in-law Matt, and three granddaughters, Sarah Belle, Emma Joy and Liberty Grace.  There is no greater than privilege watching our granddaughters being raised in the Word.

In 2014 we settled in Sandpoint, Idaho in the beautiful Selle Valley. I currently help veterans as a Veteran’s Service Officer for Bonner County. If you know of anyone needing assistance navigating the VA system, they can contact me!
