Comments about Brandon

It's clear you're a seasoned presenter. You know how to shift gears from presenting, directing, responding, and interacting with the participants. You're also very at ease with participants and you do a great job establishing personal rapport with them.

Brandon is an engaging speaker. Brandon has a great read on the culture where Jr. High and Sr. High students live and appropriately uses humor, technology, and relevant application to effectively communicate with his audience. His personable approach to students on a one on one basis enhances his effectiveness of communicating biblical truth to the group at large.
