Pastor of Spiritual Development and Care
Brandon is originally from Indiana. In 2007, he received two Bachelor of Art degrees in English Literature and World Religions and Philosophy from Missouri Valley College. In 2011, he graduated with a Master's Diploma in Steward Leadership from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and is continuing pursuit of a Masters of Divinity from Gateway Seminary. He is married to the love of his life Jennifer, and has three beautiful daughters, Amoriyah, Noelle, and Sarallah.
Early on, the Stikos were called to church planting. Brandon was trained as an elder at Cityview Church in Keller, Texas. Soon after, the Stikos moved to Springfield, Missouri to help plant Redeemer Church. They grew in many ways by assisting with Redeemer Church, but after years of discussions, prayers, and visits, they felt God’s leading to join Via Church. Brandon and Jennifer love this community and are excited to serve. They are currently helping others through Apartment Life Ministries. Brandon is an American Literature Teacher with Rite of Passage, and he is also part of the church leadership team.
