Pastor Brandon is the founding and lead pastor of Awaken Church. As a junior studying pre-law at the College of Charleston back in 2000, Pastor Brandon began following Jesus. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate Communications, he attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary earning a Master of Arts in Missiology. After leading ministries in several large churches over a ten year period, he felt God leading him back to Charleston in the fall of 2012 to plant a new church in a city he loved and called home.
Pastor Brandon leads the vision, staff, and preaching at Awaken Church. Since 2012, Awaken has seen thousands gather for worship in two locations, hundreds of small groups hosted all throughout the city, and hundreds of people make the decision to get baptized.
Pastor Brandon is passionate about seeing people far from God awakened to life in Christ and join the mission of following Jesus. He is married to Ashley, and they have two sons, Brailey and Bryson, and two daughters, Brinkley and Brooklyn.
