Vondell Brandt,

Lead Pastor 

Pastor Vondell and Mandy were married in 2002. Their initial relationship got up and running after Vondell “strategically” went on a mission trip to do ministry and get to know a beautiful girl also going on this trip. Vondell and Mandy were involved in 8 years of youth ministry in Minot, ND and 5 years as Associate Pastor in Devils Lake, ND. Vondell received seminary training through Bethel Seminary in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Brandt’s have two sons - Corbin and Mattias.  

Vondell loves hiking, mountain biking, camping, and bow hunting. Mandy loves to write, restore old furniture and go on adventures. Corbin loves fishing, biking, and forging. Mattias loves legos, reading, and swimming.

The Brandt’s desire is for Jesus to be lifted up in Williston, ND and for the Light of Jesus Christ to shine in dark places!
