Hey, I’m Brandon. Thanks for checking out my site.
I actually wanted the tagline for this site to be: Punching nominal Christianity in the face and helping you live abundant life in Jesus Christ, but some very wise people told me that a tagline like that would need some explaining. It would have also probably caused you to have this picture in your mind:
Well, I heeded their advice and stuck with: Helping you live abundant life in Jesus Christ. I still like the idea of punching nominal Christianity in the face because I think it’s one of the greatest problems that American Christianity faces, but in the end, my writing, my speaking, my ministry, exists to call people back to Christ.
This site is written for those who want to grow in their relationship with God, to be conformed to the Cross of Christ, to be transformed by the Holy Spirit, and to live the life God wants you to live.
A little bit about me:
I am the proud husband of Sara and father of Kairea and Piper. I didn’t grow up going to church or having faith in Jesus. I became antagonistic toward church as a teenager. I believed that those pastors just wanted your money!
God grabbed me at the age of 19 and began to show me His ways, His will, and His extravagant love.
At the age of 21 God called me to vocational ministry. Between God grabbing me and calling me to ministry, I discovered my gifting: communicating the Gospel message of hope, redemption, and adventure through preaching, writing, and any other medium available. Speaking of other mediums, I love the art of spoken word and have a couple tracks of my own.
After moving to Cincinnati, Ohio in 2011 with my wife – leaving our full-time jobs – and attending Cincinnati Christian University, I got my first taste of vocational ministry and haven’t looked back. I graduated from CCU in 2013 with a B.S. in Biblical Studies & Leadership and Ministry. I am currently working on an M.A.R. in Theology.
I serve as the Spiritual Development Pastor at The Crossing, a church plant in Batavia, Ohio (east side of Cincinnati). I get to preach, teach, write, and develop content and curriculum. It’s pretty awesome.
In the Spring of 2015, a friend and I started a ministry for pastors called, RookiePreacher.com. We get to help pastors preach and lead better. It’s a blast!

I’ve also been blessed to become a published author. This is another calling I believe God has given me – to take His message of hope and grace to more and more people. I currently have one book published and another one in the works that is set to be released February 7, 2017. To be the first in the know about my upcoming books, you can subscribe to the community here.
