Dr. Brandon Park came to Connection Point Church in September 2012, when he began working with church leadership to shape the vision for the church, giving the church momentum to grow and move forward in ministry. Pastor Brandon views his role as two-fold: to lead and to feed. As Lead Pastor, he provides leadership for all Connection Point staff and ministries and serves as the primary vision caster for our church. He also has the opportunity to be the lead teaching pastor, delivering practical and relevant biblical messages each Sunday. Pastor Brandon truly loves every facet of his role, especially teaching on Sundays and coaching others in one-on-one and small group discipleship settings, but his ultimate favorite part is seeing God transform lives through His Word and the power of Jesus Christ.
Brandon is a bit of a health nut, so if he’s not at church or at home, there’s a good chance he is at the gym working out. In addition to exercising and healthy eating, Brandon also enjoys being on or near the water, traveling, and being around anything with a motor on it – cars, motorcycles, airplanes, boats, etc. He has a particular love for aviation and enjoys flying small planes.
Something not many people know about Brandon is that he is quite an accomplished speller. He’s so good, in fact, that he won his high school spelling bee two years in a row! His love of learning that continues today helped propel him through an undergrad and three graduate degrees. Pastor Brandon received a Bachelor of Science degree in Pastoral Ministries with a minor in psychology from Liberty University as well as two Masters degrees (M.A.R. and M.Div.) and a doctorate (D.Min.) specializing in communication from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary.
Brandon met his wife Carrie at Liberty University and married in 2004. Together they have three awesome kids they call “The Triple A’s” – Austin, Ava, and Ainsley. Austin (born 2006), loves playing Xbox and flag football, Ava Marie (born 2008) enjoys competing in track and field, and Ainsley (born 2010) is an amazing gymnast. The Park family is rounded out by a Yorkie named Biscuit and a hedgehog named Chester.
