Born in 1981, Brandon is the younger of Steve & Becky Fender’s two sons. In July of 1999 at a summer youth camp, he answered ‘yes’ to the call of God on his life to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Brandon married Mandy Womack on February 15, 2003. They are the proud parents of their son, Tyler Cody, born on January 21, 2004, and their daughter, Jadyn Taenelle, born on August 7, 2006!
In addition to their Livingway Senior Pastoral duties, Brandon & Mandy have served and continue to serve in many capacities at Livingway. In September of 2004, they founded Generation X Youth Ministries, a thriving multi-cultural, multi-generational group of young people that they pastored for 12 years. Brandon and Mandy also lead ManPower and EmpowHER, the men’s and women’s ministries of Livingway.
The Lord has opened many diverse doors for Brandon to minister. He has ministered at American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) national events including: AQHA Youth World Show, AQHA World Show, AQHA Select World Show and the All-American Quarter Horse Congress. He has also appeared at elementary schools, junior high schools, high schools as well as their sports teams to encourage and challenge them with the Word of God.
Even though his heart is focused on Livingway and the surrounding areas, Brandon still finds time to minister at the national level at conferences, men’s ministries, churches and even leadership sessions for businesses and companies.
In 2016, Brandon & Mandy became the Senior Pastors of Livingway Church where they continue to serve God and His people faithfully. Pastor Brandon is excited about the future of God’s people and the harvest that God has promised in the last days! He believes that, if you are alive in Christ, “Your Best Is Next!”
