Board Member
Bryan Jody, Director of Student Ministry, Bellville United Methodist Church

Bryan Jody serves as the Youth Ministry Director at Bellville United Methodist Church.  Originally from inner city Houston, Bryan spent much of his childhood in Pasadena, TX, and was active in sports, school, and church activities.  He attended Blinn College and Texas A&M University as he pursued his paramedic license.  During college, Bryan worked as an EMT in both Harris and Washington counties, an experience that exposed him to the horrors of child abuse and left him with a lasting desire to serve people.

While attending Texas A&M, Bryan received his call to ministry and enrolled at Lon Morris College where he earned an Associate’s Degree in Religious Studies.  After completing his studies, Bryan served for five years as the Director of Youth Ministries at Flower Mound United Methodist Church in Flower Mound, TX.  He and his wife Sarah married in 2015 and moved to Bellville in 2016 to be closer to their families.
