Hi, I’m Brandon

I coach Christian leaders from burnout to breakthrough.

The best solutions to the biggest problems in the world will come from healthy, visionary, kingdom-focused Christian leaders!

I became a Pastor when I was 19. I’ve served churches of 35 regular attenders up to one of America’s largest churches, averaging 25,000+ in weekend attendance. And then I burned out. That was 2020-21.

I’ve been a church planter, a leadership coach, and a communications consultant and website developer. And in every arena in which I’ve been privileged to lead, I’ve observed that everything really does rise and fall on leadership.

That’s why I’m determined to help great leaders recover from the mental, emotional, and relational turmoil of leading in today’s culture of isolation, consumerism, polarization, and workaholism.

You can be healthy, whole, and holy! And when you are at your best, everyone around you gets better!

Are You Walking Through BURNOUT in Your Leadership?

I’ve read back through journals I kept during one of the hardest seasons of my life and I feel two things.

First, gratitude! I’m grateful to have emerged from the dark valley of leadership burnout.

And second, burdened! I’m passionate about offering other leaders a word of encouragement.

I put together, out of my own experience, a free assessment designed to help you know if you’re either headed for burnout or you’re right in the middle of it.

4 Attitudes You Can Choose Today

We don’t choose our circumstances. We don’t choose the weather, the direction of the economy, what people around us will do, or the direction of world events. But we do get to choose our attitudes.

When Church Growth Is the Drug of Choice

I know, as a Pastor who has trudged through the valley of burnout, that church growth can be a powerful drug for a church leader. The temporary “high” of a well-attended event, a high-attendance Sunday, an influx of new members or baptisms, etc. can have a numbing effect that keeps us distracted from the brokenness deep within us that needs to be addressed.

3 Things You’ll Never Control As a Preacher

You and I don’t have to make things happen. We should certainly work hard to become faithful leaders and shepherds, but the enormously impossible task of generating real spiritual change is left in the hands of the very capable Holy Spirit, for whom anything is possible.
