Brice was installed as the Lead Pastor on March 6, 2016. Prior to becoming the Lead Pastor, Brice first arrived at TBC in November 2008 and served as the Pastor to Families and Young Adults. His great joy is helping people deeply connect and live in a daily way with Jesus Christ. He deeply desires for people to find a place of belonging during their sojourn in Marin County. His other great joy is his family – he married Susan in 1998 and has two boys, Owen and Jake. Brice loves movies, history, and college football.

Before coming to TBC, Brice served as Lead Pastor of Strawberry Community Church in Mill Valley for nearly 9 years. Brice ministered in several places before arriving in Marin. Among them was serving youth in Enid, OK, in the early 1990s and coaching football in France while helping launch a new church from 1994 to 1996. Most recently he has traveled with 2 ministry teams to Uganda.

Brice was born in Alva, OK, and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, MO. He received the Master of Divinity degree in 2000 and the Doctor of Ministry degree in 2016 from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary in Mill Valley, CA.

Youth Pastor

Chris Harrold

Send Email

I am a home-grown Bay area resident who can be described as being introspective, cooperative, informative, compassionate, and empathetic. In 2009 I graduated from San Francisco State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English: Creative Writing and, in 2015, from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree with an emphasis in youth ministry. I have been able to do mission work in Hungary, the Philippines, and have co-led multiple trips of teenagers to Mexico. I have been ministering to young people for over 10 years. My passion is building mentoring relationships with students and seeing God work through them. I enjoy reading, writing, backpacking, board games, video games, comic books, and other nerdy endeavors. Secretly I am athletic but don’t tell anyone.
