Brian Hook is the Senior Pastor of Aspire Church. Brian and his wife Jessica have been married for 21 years and have four children: Phoenix and Dallas who are in college, and their kids at home, Noah (15) and Faith (14). Brian accepted Christ as a teen, and has been in ministry for 33 years in various roles in ministry. Jessica and Brian met at Grand Canyon University in 1999. Brian and Jessica both are graduates of Grand Canyon University and Brian holds a Masters’ Degree of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
A year after Brian and Jessica married, they found themselves planting a college-age church in Phoenix called The Summit. It was at this time Brian and Jessica found their passion for church planting. Since then, Brian and Jessica have invested their entire married life in church planting, and have seen over 350 church planters being equipped and mobilized. As incredible as church planting has been for Brian and Jessica, their greatest ministry has been raising their kids. Part of the Hooks’ call to Tucson is also a call to see spiritual orphans become adopted in Christ and find their home in Jesus. Their guiding verse in planting Aspire Church is Romans 15:20, “I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man’s foundation. 21 but as it is written, “They who had no news of Him shall see, And they who have not heard shall understand.”
