One of the Co-Founders of Brothers Without Borders, Brandon has been in the Fire and EMS services since 2005. Brandon has worked his way through the ranks of the fire service to where he is currently the Lieutenant of the Underwater Search and Rescue Team. He also serves as a New York State Advanced EMT, as well as a Rescue Scuba Diver and Swiftwater Rescue Specialist with the Ellicott Creek Fire Company in the Town of Amherst, NY.
As a Christ follower, it was laid on Brandon’s heart to find a way to incorporate emergency services into the mission field. After doing mission work in Africa and Haiti, Brandon met with Mike and discussed how they could start an outreach at home and abroad. Knowing there was no vehicle to share the Gospel in Emergency Services, Brothers Without Borders originally had its humble beginnings as a Bible study led by Brandon, geared toward Fire and EMS. Through Christ, it has grown to an international organization that includes mission trips to the Dominican Republic, monthly gatherings, and includes over 40 active personnel assisting in the mission of reaching every man, woman, and child for Jesus.
Brandon and his wife Alicia currently reside in Tonawanda. Brandon is also actively involved in the Creative Arts Ministry at the Chapel, and is excited for what God is doing in the community here and abroad, through Brothers Without Borders.
