Pastor Brandon Markette grew up in the Northwest Indiana town of Valparaiso, Indiana. After High School, he attended Purdue University where two of the most significant events of his life occurred. First, God called him into ministry, igniting a passion for the kind of intentional disciplemaking he never experienced in the local church. Second, he met his wife of 16 years, Elena. Upon graduating from Purdue University, Brandon married Elena and they followed God’s call to Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.

After earning his Master of Divinity at Trinity, Brandon accepted a call to serve as the Pastor of Beecher Community Church. In 2011, he again followed God’s call to serve as Northview’s Pastor. Additionally, Brandon serves as a Chaplain in the USAF Reserves.

He and Elena have three children: Logan, Connor and Alexis.

2 Timothy 4:2

Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage — with great patience and careful instruction.

Titus 1:9

He must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
