Brandon is a minister, organizer,
and facilitator working across the US within faith,
education, and non-profit sectors at the
intersections of decolonizing church, contemplative
activism, and local presence to build beloved
communities. He is a serial innovator and church
planter whose latest venture is starting The Good
Neighbor Movement, an inclusive, multiracial,
justice-seeking, people of color led network of
house churches in Greensboro, NC. Brandon is a
provisional elder in the Western North Carolina Conference of The United Methodist
Church and serves on several local and national faith-based social justice committees
and boards. Rooted in his formation in the Black Church, Brandon’s visionary leadership
has spanned rural, small town, and urban communities in North Carolina and Chicago.
He writes for Sojourners, The Other Journal, Missio Alliance and other publications.
Brandon is married to Erica, a public educator and altogether cooler and more spiritual
person than Brandon! They have two sons Phillip (5) and Morris (2). Brandon hopes to
contribute to this project his gifts of group facilitation, passion for amplifying the stories
of faith communities on the margins, and intellectual curiosity for charting fresh
theological territory that impacts the church and society.
