Pastor - Bro. Brandon and His Wife Dakota
Preaching the word of God has been the heartbeat of Bro. Brandon's life since the day he was saved by God's grace. He was saved at the age of 15, and felt the call to ministry and was an itinerant preacher in his early days. He led a Bible study group in high school at Ballard Memorial High School, until he graduated from there in 2012. After graduating, he served as a volunteer youth leader at Providence Baptist Church in Monkey's Eyebrow, KY until accepting the call of Youth Minister at Ohio Valley Baptist Church in Barlow, KY in May of 2012. He was ordained into the preaching ministry one year later, in December 2013 and served as Associate Pastor there until late September 2017. He has also worked for LifeWay Christian Stores and the United States Postal Service. He holds an Associates of Arts in Biblical and Theological Studies from Boyce College of the Southern Seminary in Lousiville, KY. He and Dakota were married on March 18, 2017.
Bro. Brandon and his wife Dakota have been with us since November 2017, as he has accepted to call to be pastor of Locust Grove Baptist Church. Bro. Brandon enjoys playing guitar, hiking and especially backpacking. He has hiked and backpacked many miles and in several states.
If you haven't had the chance to meet our pastor yet, he would love to connect with you. Come and worship with us on Sundays and Wednesdays, and be blessed by the teaching of God's word. Bro. Brandon can be reached by phone at 270-816-1777. He also blogs regularly at Brandon's Desk.
Youth Pastor- Roger Polo
My name is Roger Polo and I was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1974. I moved to Kentucky in 1986 when my mother remarried a man from Marshall County. I graduated from Marshall County High school in 1992 and from Mid-Continent University in 2014. I married my high school sweetheart , Jennifer Lynn Williams Polo, in June of 1992. We now have three children, Tyler, Jaxon, and Tess. I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, camping, and going to the ocean. I have worked full time for the Briggs and Stratton Corporation since 1995 as a Manufacturing Technician in the Aluminum Machining Department. I was called to be Youth Pastor in 2010 and have made it my life to help enrich the youth of today with the truths about the Lord. We have a group of kids that enjoy meeting together to not only learn about the works of Jesus Christ but to learn how to help each of them to grow in their relationship with the Christ Jesus.
