PhD Candidate, Brandin Francabandera

Greetings, everyone. My family and I are enjoying living in the greater Phoenix area once again and I’m excited to be serving Christ Church as the Children and Family Ministry Director. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching basketball, hiking, and capturing video of the beautiful desert landscape through drone/aerial videography (Check out my aerial videography website). I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as we strive to serve Christ in Goodyear, the greater Phoenix area, and beyond. 


Education and Ministry Experience: 

I come to Christ Church with eight years ministry experience where I have served in pastoral roles, youth ministry, and children’s ministry. I received my B.A. in New Testament studies from Simpson university in 2005, my MA.T in Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in 2014, my M.Th in Theological Ethics from the University of Aberdeen in 2015, and am currently completing my Ph.D. in Theological Ethics (Specializing in Dietrich Bonhoeffer) from the University of Aberdeen.
