Rev. Brandon L. Davis is a native of Dallas, TX, where he attended David W. Carter High School. After high school, Brandon journeyed to the Fayetteville, Arkansas where he attended University of Arkansas on a Track and Field scholarship. Brandon, being an avid student of the bible, became a member of the Lord’s body in 1990. Simultaneously, Brandon was licensed by Pastor Willie J Freeman on the 28th day of January 2001 at the Greater Missionary Baptist Church in Clarksville, Tennessee, where he labored and served for 1 year before PCS-ing to Ft Bragg, NC. Brandon was ordained in the ministry September 26, 2008 in Arifjan, Kuwait by Dr. Milton S. Herring.
As a Minister, Rev. Davis’s primary responsibility is to be a pattern of the glorious truth that God saves sinners-a living example of God’s mercy, to go and make disciples of all nations, to present every man perfect in Christ Jesus, and be a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ . As a servant and leader of people, Brandon has to implore a myriad of leadership skills, specialized counseling techniques, and possesses an intricate understanding of human dynamics. Through his keen listening, discerning skills, Brandon has developed a three-prong approach to properly and effectively equip the saints. The triad consists of teaching, counseling, and training members to duplicate the church according to its biblical model.
Teaching the gospel is essential in facilitating a spiritual foundation that produces life change. Spiritual counseling is necessary for healing that result from a personal, intimate relationship with the Lord. Today, most counselors stop short by treating symptoms, failing to reach the core issues and eliminate the problem. Rev. Davis believes all problems are rooted in sin and all answers to our problems are rooted in the healing power of Jesus. However, making the connection between the core issues and the ministry of Jesus requires a counselor skilled in the word of God. As the bible tells us, the renewing of our minds is a constant process. Brandon strongly believes that aligning people with the truth and dispelling errors will facilitate this renewal process thereby bringing about transformation. Accordingly, Rev. Davis’s counseling sessions are structures to produce a regeneration of the mind. Lastly, training the saints to duplicate the process will ensure that the Lord’s body continues to grow exponentially. However, Rev. Davis cautions growth in numbers is not the equivalent to growing a spiritually healthy body of Christ, which is the ultimate goal. God is looking for those who love Him and are willing to “seek and save the lost;” which will require saints to fall in love with doing the work of the Lord. Without prayer, training, faith, and transformation, this would be merely pointlessness.
When asked who are his mentors in the gospel, Bishop Ernest Jones, Bishop J. Venturnio Porter, Bishop Milton S. Herring and a host of other great pioneers in the gospel. Rev. Davis sees the body of Christ at large as healthy and is willing to contribute locally for global change in the body to bring glory to God. When asked about a couple of his most notable experience, Brandon looks pensive, then smiles and retorts, “My most profound moment was when I give my life to Christ, and was filled with The Holy Spirit! And last but not least the word of God says a man who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord and I did on the 23rd day of July 2007”.
Currently, Brandon and wife Alfreda C. Davis serves until God says where He want His house (The Living Word Family Worship Center). To date, Rev. Davis is attending Liberty University online for Masters of Divinity and counted among the men of God and considered a Godly man, dedicating his entire life to serving and equipping the saints and bringing willing humans into a deeper relationship with Jesus for the glory of God.
