The son of a military family, Isaac grew up in many parts of the U.S. and beyond. He met his wife, Lynn, in Arkansas at Harding University, where he completed his undergraduate studies and earned a Master of Science in Marriage and Family Ministry. The Brunings moved to the Boston area in 2015 for Isaac to begin theological studies. He is currently in his third year of the Master of Divinity program at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and serves the married couples and families of Citylife. Isaac and Lynn live in Beverly and love—among many other things—good stories, the great outdoors, and their dog, Lazarus.
