Brandon Westphal


Youth Pastor

My name is Brandon. Born and raised in the Midwest. Double majored in Youth Ministry & Biblical Theological Studies at Northwestern…


I have been a Youth Pastor just under a decade, and I love seeing students lives transform into the likeness of Christ. I love fitness and formerly competed in the Bay Area. I love strong black coffee (Sideboard is my favorite coffee place). I lived in a castle and studied overseas for a year. All in all, I am just a guy who enjoys life and loves investing into other people.

Gabe Perez


Middle School Director

Hi, I’m Gabe!  Let me tell you a little bit about who I am and my vision for the middle school ministry!…


I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico, “Land of Enchantment,” for nearly my entire life, but have family all across the states. I attended Sagebrush Community Church since I was in 4th grade and grew up getting involved. The summers of 2015/2016 I worked at a camp in Glorieta, New Mexico as a camp counselor and discovered how much I loved ministering and teaching others about Christ! During my second summer, I was recommended for this job and through weeks of prayer and seeking the Lord I knew He was calling me here to build up and lead this ministry!

Since then its been a fun crazy ride leading my own ministry and preaching regularly all while playing games and building relationships with the students the Lord has entrusted me with. My goal constantly is to encourage and challenge the kids to make their faith their own, not to piggy back from their family. While this isn’t a rapid process, I hope to guide and nurture their walks with the Lord as they learn more about God from me and other spiritual leaders in their lives.

We have Wednesday night services every week from 7-8:30pm and a Sunday morning bible study at 9am before service. Every student from 6th-8th grade is welcome to come any time to any these gatherings and any parents that have questions are free to email me!

Have a blessed day and I hope to see you or your student join us in celebrating and learning more about Jesus!
