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.
- Gratitude! I’m grateful to have emerged from the dark valley of leadership burnout.
- Burdened! I’m passionate about offering other leaders a word of encouragement.
I put together, out of my own experience, a list of factors that indicate you’re either headed for burnout or you’re right in the middle of it. Click the graphic or the button to download a free copy of The Burnout Checklist.
