Brian and Sheli Correll became the lead pastors of Life Church One Eighty in July 2014. Brian’s background includes growing up in Tanzania, East Africa, due to his parents serving as missionaries. His childhood was full of hunting, camping adventures, and incredible spiritual experiences that later set the stage for ministry.

At a young age, Brian felt the call of God on his life and was determined to attend Bible college in Springfield, Missouri. Upon graduation from Bible college, Brian held staff positions in Illinois and Colorado and pastored churches in Nebraska. In 1980 Brian fulfilled a childhood commitment and became a missionary to Kenya, East Africa. Brian worked with pastors from across the country in Kenya, utilizing the same language he learned as a boy in Tanzania.

After many years in Africa, Brian moved to Indiana. Brian and Sheli pastored several churches in Hendricks county before accepting the pastorate at Life Church One Eighty. Brian and Sheli have five children and eight grandchildren.
