Welcome from Pastor

welcome-from-pastor-johnGreetings in the Name of the Jesus,

Brandon Presbyterian Church is a historic Presbyterian Church in downtown Brandon, Mississippi.  We are part of the Presbyterian Church in America and the Presbytery of the Mississippi Valley.  The church, that is to say, the community of Christ, began in 1851 and the sanctuary was erected in 1871.  We still worship in this sanctuary every Lord’s Day.

My prayer for Brandon Presbyterian Church is that we would keep one foot firmly planted in our being a historic, downtown Presbyterian congregation while stepping out in faith through Christ, growing by grace in faith, hope, and love; reaching the lost, and showing mercy to the poor.  As the assistant pastor here for ten years, I have seen signs of this happening and as the senior pastor I am encouraged to see it more and more.

I want to welcome you to this site and to our church.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  See “contact us” under the “visit us” menu option on the homepage.  We would, of course, love to have you visit us and worship with us.

Blessings in Christ,

Rev. John K. Dawson
