Matthew 1:18-25

18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. 21And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. 22Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. 24Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife: 25And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. (KJV)

About Brandon Hembree: Pastor Brandon was born and raised in Mississippi. He graduated from a small Christian college in Clinton, MS in 2007 with a degree in political science and communication. After spending a year in law school, he surrendered to God’s call to be a pastor. Brandon has served vocationally in ministry since he was 18 years old, in which he served as a youth minister. He moved to Northern VA to answer the call as a youth pastor in May 2009 at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Manassas. After fulfilling many different roles throughout his time there as teaching pastor and providing leadership to many different ministries, he once again was challenged by The Lord and his local church to start a new church so that new people could be reached. On the same day, December 18, 2011, Brandon married his wife, Ellen, and they were commissioned to the mission field of Fairfax, VA. The heartbeat of Brandon’s ministry is having a front row seat to life change by proclaiming The Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is actively engaged in the community, serving on the Board of Directors for Cutting EDGE Ministries, a non-profit in NOVA focused on bringing The Gospel to public high schools. He is a baseball enthusiast and coffee-addict.
