The Rev. Dr. Brian Maguire serves as the Senior Pastor of Fairmont Presbyterian Church in Dayton, Ohio, and also as an adjunct instructor at United Theological Seminary in Dayton. As a recovering corporate attorney, Brian also cleans up assorted ecclesial messes for denominations. Over the past decade, Brian has co-led thirteen Holy Land trips with CLAL seeking to nurture a love of the Holy Land, deeper sensitivity to religious and cultural complexity, and a greater connection to both place and past for Christian clergy. Brian's work in both Christian theology and inter-faith understanding is grounded on his Reformed belief that God has one plan for humanity called Covenant into which all are either born or invited to participate. In addition to theology degrees from Princeton Theological Seminary and Duke University Divinity School, Brian is a graduate of The Living School focused on the practices of the Christian contemplative tradition. Brian's ongoing research interests focus on the divergence of understandings of salvation in Late Antiquity both between and within Abrahamic faiths.
