As Chief Operating Officer, Bryan Crain manages operations and student residential programs at all Orange County Rescue Mission sites and properties. His operational oversight includes financial analysis, business planning, risk mitigation strategies, and technology solutions.
Bryan came to the Orange County Rescue Mission after a 19-year career as co-founder and Chief Operating Officer of Wise Brother Media, the largest independent radio production company in the nation. During his time at Wise Brother, Bryan developed radio’s leading news and content services, which continue to reach millions of listeners every day. He has extensive experience in strategic planning, product development, technology management, and leading large teams in a deadline-driven environment.
Bryan’s passion for serving the homeless began with a small ministry which served a hot chili dinner once per week to the homeless community in downtown Santa Ana. Over time, that ministry grew into the Orange County Rescue Mission’s Chili Van, which now serves hundreds of people each month in multiple locations.
Bryan and his wife, Natasha, live in Tustin with their three kids. He enjoys hiking, camping, reading, traveling, and spending time with his family.
