Brent is chaplain for a professional football team, her two older sons play ice hockey, and her youngest, volleyball. The Kassians enjoy biking, hiking, snorkeling (when they can find some warm water!), music, board games, mountains, campfires, and their family pets: Miss Kitty and black lab, General Beau.
As quoted from the official site of the Edmonton Eskimos:
"He’s at every game, has access to the most intimate details of players’ lives and the impact of his work can last a lifetime. His name is Brent Kassian, but you can call him Chappy, as nicknamed by the players. He is the Eskimo team chaplain. The role of the team chaplain is, in my opinion, vitally important to our team,” says Eskimo Head Coach Kavis Reed. “Besides providing much-needed spiritual services for the players and staff, the chaplain is able to provide counselling to players and their families, if necessary.”
His pastoral duties include, but are not limited to, prayer and encouragement, leading a weekly Bible study and providing training and resources for character development and life management.
