Senior Pastor - Chase Wagner
As a pastor, I love the joy of being able to share the Word of God in His house. God has blessed me with a beautiful wife and three wonderful children. We have a desire to grow with the church and reach out to the lost world around us. As a family, we love spending time with each other and friends. As God continues to lead me down a path of education, I will finish a Master’s degree in Christian Counseling, and then pray for the timing to further my education. My vision for myself is to hold the Word of God first in my life and strive to grow in the calling He has for me. I look forward to the future opportunities of sharing the love of our Lord. Remember, that the love of God covers a multitude of sin and you are always welcome in the house of God.
Youth Pastor - Jacob Mitchell
I am currently a senior at SBU seeking a degree in Youth Ministry. God has placed a call on my life to train the next generation towards a biblical lifestyle by worshiping and honoring Christ. I believe that this is done through Bible Study and living life with the Youth Group. My wife and I have been serving at Brighton since August 2018. I hope you come join us!
