Brandon Lantz, Assistant Pastor
Brandon moved to Evans with his family in 2009 and was led to West Town shortly after moving, and has been here ever since. Several years after joining WTCC and in active involvement with our Celebrate Recovery ministry and in membership classes, Brandon felt a significant call into the ministry in 2014, and he officially began the process towards ordination in 2015.
Brandon was born in Lansing, Michigan and remained there until joining the US Army in 2001. He served for 11 years as a member of the Armed Forces and has deployed multiple times to Iraq and Afghanistan. He served as a paratrooper and jumpmaster, and he is also a linguist, maintaining proficiency in two languages, Arabic and Pashto…so he loves getting into “what does this really mean” type of conversations.
Brandon was married to his wife Jessica in 2005 and they have two boys, Brody and Jameson, and a daughter, Lea Evangeline.
He is an avid University of Michigan football fanatic
