S.A.L.T. Program Director (Agapé Center)

Brandon comes to us as a theology graduate of Eastern University . He finds the core values of Messiah and the Agapé Center a good fit with his passions of seeing Christ preeminent in academics, community, and serving not only "the least of these", but also serving peers and colleagues. He is excited to combine his passions of theology, environmental ethics, and urban development while challenging and encouraging students to expand their horizons in these areas. He is a person who thrives in social atmospheres so he looks forward to working with the team at the Agapé Center and is excited about the new opportunities and challenges that await him.
