Brandon has a passion for evangelism and discipleship and cites his passion for reaching those who don’t know Jesus as having stemmed from not growing up in the church. After coming to faith in Christ at a Presbyterian college, Sterling College (Kansas), Brandon experienced a call to pastoral ministry that was nurtured and grown by his home church. This growth would lead to extensive education, including a Doctoral program in preaching that was offered as a one-time-only program in the field of homiletics, as well as training in the areas of church planting, church revitalization, and multiplication.
