Luke 18:1-8

1And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; 2Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: 3And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary. 4And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; 5Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. 6And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. 7And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? 8I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? (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.
