Braden is our Next Gen leader and is involved in worship heavily! (He’s the guy with the beard) He and his wife joined the LP family in June of 2022. They are both from Texas and were married November 2021. They both wanted to branch out and see where God would take them in ministry, and that’s kind of the back story of why they moved here to Paola. He does say this, the BBQ here matches up!

Braden grew up on a farm in Texas, played college football at Wayland Baptist University, and was in the US Army for 6 years! He’s been in ministry as a worship pastor for 7 years and a youth pastor for 4 years! Proclaiming the gospel and showing the love of Christ to others is his passion, and God has been so faithful in his life! He is glad to be here at LP and looks forward to what God is doing and what He will do through this body of believers!
