Brandon Smith

Personal Background

Brandon and Amy Smith joined the ministry of AFCI-USA in September of 2016. They both graduated from the University of North Dakota (Brandon B.A. in Business Management, Amy B.A. Elementary Education).   Upon graduation they joined the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) in 2007. They served with Cru for the past decade in various ministry and leadership roles, engaging in Evangelistic and Discipleship ministries on four different campuses. During those years they were also involved in short-term evangelistic international ministry.   They both received Cru Biblical and Theological training through the Institute of Biblical Studies, the 2-year New Staff Training curriculum, as well as a variety of specific training and areas of study. Recently, Brandon completed a four-year term serving as an elder in a thriving new church plant in Moorhead, Minnesota. With their two sons, Brody and Beckett, they reside in Fargo, North Dakota.

Ministry Focus

Brandon continues to have a ministry of Evangelism and Discipleship among college students on the three local Universities. Much of this work is with athletes. He also has a ministry of the Word in the local community and church. He preaches and teaches in various settings such as the local Church, Retreats, juvenile detention, and Christian ministries on University campuses.

God has also given Brandon and Amy a very special calling with the gift of their two- year old son Beckett with special needs. Beckett has severe disabilities as a result of neurological damage. Leaving her fruitful ministry with college women, Amy has embraced the unique and challenging role as primary daily caregiver. She blogs and writes frequent updates on Beckett’s ever-changing condition and God’s goodness on Caring-Bridge and Blog-Spot. She has had a tremendous impact on hundreds of people through her writing and trust in God.

This unique chapter and calling has opened up many doors for Brandon. He has been given a powerful platform to show how a Biblical worldview fits reality and has serious ramifications for our lives. By contrasting the Bible’s views concerning the Sacredness of Humanity and Life to the many relativized and pluralistic worldviews around us, he has been able to communicate the glory of God and beauty of the gospel to our secular world. Beckett’s condition and their journey of suffering has opened many doors for the gospel to be proclaimed.

Together, Brandon and Amy are advocates for those with special needs and their families. They have been blessed to discover and communicate God’s plan in disability to those inside and outside of the church.
