Brandon was born and raised in Omaha Nebraska. Growing up with four other siblings was a real joy for him. Brandon attended the Awana program at his church, Community Bible, and it was there that he received Jesus as his Savior. Brandon states “I didn’t fully realize what it meant to be a Christian until I attended Christian Youth in Action and was introduced to CEF. The people at camp challenged me to grow in my personal walk with God and gain a burden for the lost children of the world.” Brandon plans to attend the Children’s Ministries Institute at CEF Headquarters next fall. Brandon feels blessed to have this opportunity and can’t wait to see what God has planned for his life.
