Monthly Message from the Pastor


Meet the Spiritual Team


Brian Markle


Hi, my name is Pastor Brian Markle.  I am the pastor of the West York Church of the Brethren.  I have been in fulltime ministry for more than ten years and have been at West York COB since January 2020.  I began my working career as a Health & Physical Education teacher working in the elementary system and coaching varsity football.  I moved to private industry after seven years of teaching/coaching and accepted a position in management in the woodworking industry.  After twenty-five years of successful management positions including General Manager, I transitioned to fulltime ministry after several years of required ministerial schooling.
I am married to Nancy for thirty-five years and together we have four children, nine grandchildren and two great grandchildren.  I was born and raised in York County and was blessed to travel many parts of the world as a part of management in the wood industry.  Nancy and I enjoy the mission field and have been blessed to do mission work both within the U.S. and beyond our borders.  We have especially enjoyed several mission trips to Guatemala.
Being a pastor is both challenging and rewarding today.  I look forward to continuing my work ministering in our church and community.
