Christian Brands

Student Ministries Pastor

Christian grew up primarily in Rochester, Minnesota, then lived in St. Petersburg, Florida for two years. After returning to the Midwest to study at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul, he earned his B.A. in Pastoral Ministry in 2017 and went on to complete his M.Div. at Northwestern the following year. Christian has been a part of GracePoint since 2014 and has since served in a variety of roles as an intern, as a volunteer, as a Junior High Assistant, and now as our Youth Pastor. His goal in ministry is to help students know, love, and live out the gospel of Jesus. Christian is happily married to his high school sweetheart and best friend, Rachel. In his spare time, he enjoys relaxing with Rachel, having good conversations with friends, singing a little too loudly in the car, and getting lost in God’s creation.
