Brian Bacelieri, Elder
Next Generation Ministries
Brian Bacelieri has been blessed to see God take a vision, that started in the hearts of a few over 15 years ago, and transform that into what is now known as Commonwealth City Church. In that time God has awakened a hunger and a thirst in him to see a unified community of believers set ablaze for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Even more specifically, God has given him a desire to equip and train families to have a big view of God and the gospel for the sake of raising the next generation of passionate Christ followers. Brian is married to his lovely wife, Paige, and their quiver has been filled with four children: Elijah, Eliana, Elora, and Elise. In addition to serving the local church, he enjoys the outdoors, playing basketball, and woodworking, as well as a good home reno project.

Adam Braun, Elder
Biblical community is a mighty force in the hands of a sovereign, good God. In Adam, God replaced a heart of stone with a heart of flesh through the faithful gospel witness of a group of college friends. In him also, God fanned into flame a desire for Christ's kingdom, a love of Christ's name, a hunger for Christ's word, all through the fellowship of a Christ-treasuring church family that would eventually be called "Commonwealth City Church." Because of this, Adam yearns that all would know the inexpressible joys of communion with Christ as part of a Biblical community. As an elder, he oversees Commonwealth's Family Groups, which aim to be such a community living out the Great Commission, thriving by the power of the Holy Spirit. He and his amazing wife Ashley have four children: Oliviah, David, Sophia, and Tessah.
