Brandon Allen

Pastor on Staff / MTV Students

Who is your family?

My amazing wife is Miranda and we have two kids: Emmette and Emory.

What do you do?

I have the honor of helping middle school and high school students grow in their faith with Jesus Christ. I also teach and help students create biblical community with other students that help them strengthen their Christian walk.

What has led you to this point?

While I was in college, my dream was to coach football after I graduated. Little did I know, God was preparing me to step into youth ministry full time. After graduating, I served as a student pastor full time for a year until I was blessed with a college coaching job that allowed me to coach and pastor. I juggled both jobs for 4 years in Alexandria, LA until I felt God was calling me to a different city. After much praying and seeking God for guidance with my next chapter, I was contacted by Mt Vernon and the rest is history.

What is your quirk?

I am a picky eater. I will literally gag if I eat a food that has a strange texture (Lettuce, coconut, onions, tomatoes…)

What is your favorite “southern” saying?
