Brandon Steele

Lead Pastor

Because Brandon loves people and loves sharing the Word of God, you’ll find him serving in many different areas of our church — leading our House Church and Discipleship efforts, teaching on Sundays (primarily at Marathon), and serving on the Respond Team and at Prayer Gathering. He and his wife, Courtney, were original members of the team that planted Ethos in 2008. Brandon has been on staff since 2009, serving in pastoral and teaching roles from the very beginning!

Originally from Murray, KY, Brandon has lived in Nashville since 2004. He attended Lipscomb University which is where he met his bride, Courtney. They served on a freshman orientation team in 2005 together and started dating shortly after...the rest is history! Brandon is proud to say that Courtney was the only girl he dated in college, and they were married a week after his graduation. They now have three beautiful children — Finley, Jones and Merritt. Their German Shepherd, Paisley, rounds out the Steele family!

During his off hours, Brandon loves spending time outdoors with his family. You can find him mowing the grass with great pride, building things out of wood, exercising, going to the beach, and throwing a football or playing basketball together.
