Introducing Rev. Brian Hauser

Posted August 17, 2021

Rev. Brian Hauser is the newly called pastor at the Mars United Presbyterian Church. This is Rev. Hauser’s second call after serving yoked churches in the Kiskiminetas Presbytery, our eastern neighbors, for the past seven years. A native of western Pennsylvania, Brian returned to PA after graduating from Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in 2014. He is an ’08 graduate of Clarion University with a B.S. in Elementary Education.  

Brian’s family includes his wife Ashley and their five children. The oldest child is six!! Brian welcomes your prayers! In addition to serving the church and caring for his family, Pastor Hauser enjoys being outdoors with activities like golf, hunting, hiking and playing and watching sports. Of course he is a Penguins, Steelers, and Pirates fan!

Brian is an advocate for building healthy relationships with a focus on community. In his previous role he served on the library board, town fair committee, and Lion’s Club International. It is this love of community that nudged Pastor Brian to come to Mars as this is a big focus of the Mars UP church. 

Please join us in welcoming Pastor Brian to the Beaver-Butler Presbytery at his installation service that is tentatively scheduled for Sunday September 19 at 2 p.m.
