Brian Bolt gave his life to Christ in the back of an ambulance after being shot in the head. His life was radically transformed when he became a part of a men’s recovery home. There, he discovered his calling to become a pastor and plant churches.
After attending Bible college in eastern Pennsylvania, he relocated to Pittsburgh and started the first men’s Hope Home and CityReach Church, where he presently serves as the lead pastor. Out of this ministry grew the CityReach Network, which exists to start churches in cities across America. So far, the Network includes 13 existing churches and is on target to double that number. As well as being founder and president of CityReach Network, Bolt is also the executive director of Network of Hope, a compassion-based non-profit.
