About Brian

M y name is Brian Burchik, and I love my life…seriously. I’m not just saying that. My wife Erin, my daughter Amyra (that’s her running next to me), and black lab Macy all contribute to that fact.

For the last six years, I’ve been a pastor to hundreds of students and young adults outside Atlanta, Georgia at Grace-Snellville. During this time, I wrestled through 3 years of grad school at Bethel Seminary, gaining a Masters degree in Transformational Leadership. So technically, I’ve mastered leading transformation. (Not to be pretentious or anything.)

In 2011, I began the #LiveFully project because God spoke to me at a mattress store (true story) and I wanted to help people clarify why they are here and what they are called to do with their lives.

Through the blog and my new book, I share the vision and perspectives that have led to powerful transformation in my own life and faith community.

Today, I devote the majority of my time as a speaker, writer, and ministry coach. Whether I’m communicating on a stage, behind a laptop, or one-on-one coaching, my goal is simple: to empower people to live the most full life on the planet.

I believe God’s story, as told in the Bible, offers the greatest vision for life. I’ve seen firsthand the transformation when people experience the life that Jesus offers, and I can’t settle for anything less. It’s my privilege to lead and coach others to grab hold of it as well.  



Whether it's a weekend retreat, conference, camp, or in the classroom, I communicate in a clear, refreshing style so listeners can grab hold of life-changing paradigms and perspectives. If you are interested in having me speak for your event, just email or fill out a request form at

Brian Burchik’s message of #LiveFully will challenge your students to not put Christ at the forefront of their life, but instead to allow Christ to permeate every aspect of their life, so that they can bring Heaven to Earth in their community."
Travis Graham, Student Pastor Mars Hill Baptist Church
Brian Burchik is one of the most gifted Gospel communicators our student ministry has ever heard from. The words of Christ have taken root in the hearts of our teens like never before thanks to his clear teaching style and use of relevant illustrations. Some guys are just naturally gifted speakers and some have the Spirit of God on their ministry. I would say Brian has both.”
Jason Mangrum, Student Pastor Cross Point Baptist Church
Brian has a gift for connecting with students and bringing the life-giving words of Jesus to their ears in a fresh way. It’s been a privilege to watch him speak and lead students into the full life of walking with Jesus in his kingdom.”
