Brendan O'Brien

Director of European Operations
Lehigh Valley

Brendan O’Brien came on board in 2001 and now oversees vision, strategy, and finances for all of Push The Rock’s European offices. He also guides the Regional Directors/District Managers who manage day-to-day operations in Europe.

Brendan has traveled on seven mission trips to Tenerife, Spain, three trips to Chicago for basketball camps, and has been a part of too many Summer basketball camps to count.

He coached the Bethlehem Christian School Girls Basketball team to 13 CAMSA championships, winning 10 of them. He also coached the BCS Girls Basketball to four undefeated seasons and the Lehigh Valley Christian High School Girls Varsity Basketball team to their first ever ACCAC level Championship.

Brendan grew up in church and asked Jesus “into his heart” at the age of six, but it wasn’t until late high school years that he decided to live his life as a Christ follower. Through the influence of his teachers and principal at Lehigh Valley Christian High School, he saw the value of turning his life over to Christ and living a life that follows after Him.

The best lesson I learned about sportsmanship was…
At age 30, through interaction with Push The Rock staff, I learned that the player is worth more than the points. They challenged me to be intentional about using every moment in sports to reflect Christ. It was then that I understood that sports are not only used to reflect Christ, but to share Him as well. I learned that there is more to sports than the outcome of the game and that each athletic opportunity is a moment to lead, mentor, and guide others, sharing Christ through it all.
