Mr. Bryan Pritchard
Bryan was born and raised in Newburgh, New York. After growing up in the Hudson Valley, Bryan served our nation in the U.S. Army as a signal systems support specialist. Following a tour of duty in South Korea, Sargent Pritchard was deployed to Kuwait and Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. After 25 years as a small business owner and a manager in the transportation/logistics industry, Bryan joined the Good Shepherd Team as Director of Buildings and Properties in February 2020. Three weeks later, COVID-19 Stay-At- Home orders went into effect. Bryan immediately went to work on building our online campus that not only kept parishioners and parish connected during the “shut down”, but continues to this very day. Bryan holds an undergrad degree in Communications and Media Arts, completed Primary Leadership Development during his army days, and is certified in Food Safety Management. He is currently currently pursuing a certificate in Church Management from the Villanova School of Business. Bryan is the proud father of five. He and his wife, Samantha, live in Lower Paxton Township. Bryan is a volunteer firefighter with the Linglestown Fire Department.

Favorite Thing about Good Shepherd: The People!!
When Not Serving at Good Shepherd: I love spending time with the family. I like to fish, grill, and watch my kids play sports. I enjoy landscaping and Food Trucks.
