My name is Brent, and I am one of the Elders at Sojourn. My wife Krystle and I hace been married since 2009, and God has blessed us with a jovial and energetic son, Zachariah.
The name sojourn implies that everyone is on a spiritual journey. For me, I want my journey to be defined by my faith and trust in Jesus.
When I was young, my family attended church regularly and I had a working knowledge of God's love for me and who the characters in the Bible stories were, namely Jesus. I participated in Bible Drill, Children's camp, Youth Camp, and numerous church choirs. Despite my knowledge of Jesus and participation in these church activities, I still lacked the heartfelt confession of faith in Jesus. It wasn't until I was in 5th grade that I came to know Jesus as my true Lord and Savior and was baptized soon after that.
In college at the University of Alabama, God created an intense desire within me to serve him and His church with my whole life. The next step in my spiritual journey was to refine God's call on my life to be a pastor and church starter at Southwestern Seminary.
I serve Sojourn in a full time capacity. It brings great pleasure to me to serve the Sojourn Church family as we live by the gospel, in community together and on mission for Jesus here in Fargo-Moorhead!
