Brady Nelson | Senior Pastor
REV. BRADY is a Colorado kid who ended up moving to St. Louis and becoming a Cardinals fan, but never gave up his love for God’s creation. After completing his philosophy degree at Truman State University and his Mdiv at Covenant Theological Seminary, the Lord brought Jenna into his life.
Jenna is a Georgia peach who came to faith through the ministries of Campus Outreach at University of West Georgia. Brady and Jenna were married less than a year after meeting and soon moved to Gainesville, GA where Brady served as the Assistant Pastor for five years with a focus on youth ministry. During this time, the Lord deeply impressed them with a love for discipleship and pastoral care - especially meeting over good southern cooking.
Their family began to grow with the birth of Eli and a few years later, Benjamin. Brady and Jenna continued to feel the call to serve in India and took the call to serve in Dehradun, a “small” city of one million that sits at the foothills of the Himalayas. Their family continued to grow as Hudson joined the party. Jenna was pregnant with Abigail at the start of the pandemic.
Following the global effects of COVID, the Nelson family felt called to serve the local church in the United States and are excited to be able to serve the Brookhaven community.
