Brian O'Connor Biography Near Death vs. Christian Faith By Melissa Lunsman Brian G. O'Connor grew up near Green Bay, Wisconsin. He was introduced to Christ at the Catholic church his family attended, and he developed leadership skills and a strong work ethic on his familys farm. During his childhood and adolescence, he had several close brushes with death. One incident triggered a near-death experience that guided him toward music as his calling in life. It also inspired him to compete in long-distance running events, which became a lifelong passion. Later, Brian reaffirmed his faith in Christ by becoming a born-again Christian. Brian received college degrees in business and education, and he held positions in sales and teaching prior to establishing his own businesses. Currently, he owns: rental property; Green Tree Studio, a video and audio production company; Green Tree Publishing, which publishes sheet music; and Green Tree Christian Homes, a residential care establishment for developmentally disabled adults. Brians numerous other activities include running, swimming, biking, playing and watching football, playing music at local church services, and, above all, composing music. His music attempts to bridge the gap between the knowledge he gained during his near-death experience and his faith as a born-again Christian. Brian ultimately hopes his music brings people closer to Christ.
