Lead Pastor Brian Faria
YA|Youth Pastor
Xavier Martinez

Pastor Brian Faria was born in Brazil and raised in Massachusetts. Having grown up in church, his faith was always a guiding core value. At the age of 23, he encountered Jesus in a much more personal way and decided to pursue the Lord with greater passion. That pursuit a few short years after, led him to transition from the corporate business world and into ministry training at Northpoint Bible College in Haverhill, MA.  There he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies and Pastoral Ministries. He also has a Bachelor’s degree in International Business from Johnson & Wales University.


Brian has called Celebration International Church “home,” since 2008. In 2010, he began serving in various capacities under the former Lead Pastor. That same year, at a church function, he met his wife Nathalia. She has a degree in Sociology and works in the social services field. They have been married since 2016 and have a son, Micah.
