My name is Brandon Read and I am the Youth Director for Mariners Church on the Coastside. I have grown up all over California, but for the last 8 years have called Santa Barbara home. I have an Associates degree in Music Production and a Bachelors Degree in Theology. My Wife Jessica and I got married in June of 2012 and are enjoying still being Newlyweds. We have a “Choxin” (Dachshund / Chihuahua mix) named Brody and a cat named Oliver. Together we love to eat sushi, go camping, beach and nature walks, road trips, and enjoying good food and laughs with friends. I love surfing, taking photos and music.
My theme verse has always been Romans 12:1-2 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
I have always felt that God has called me to work in the lives of youth. Both Jessica and I are very excited to call Mariners Church home, and we are very excited to be a part of the plans that God has in the lives of the youth on the Coastside!
