Brandon was born and raised in Fresno, CA, and doesn’t consider it “hot” until it’s over 100 °F. He chose to follow Jesus while in high school and has been passionate about introducing others to Jesus ever since. Prior to arriving at New Hope, he served as a pastor for 10 years at 2 churches in California. He joined the New Hope staff in 2014 as the Family Life Pastor, overseeing all ministries from birth thru College/Young Adults. He then moved into the role of Executive Pastor, a role he served in for nearly 3 years, before serving in his current role as Lead Pastor.


Brandon serves as the primary preacher at our Weekend Services and is responsible for the overall leading and direction of New Hope Church. He also provides visionary, strategic, and collaborative leadership for the staff and ministry of the church.


Brandon is married to Meagan, the best wife he could ever hope to have. They have four amazing and active kids; Jaxon, Lincoln, Sawyer, and Keira.
