Pastor Paul Anthony Turner
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, I am a proud southerner (of a sort). I am a runner who has completed two marathons, and I just started my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of Kentucky. My favorite pastime is being with my friends, as I am a huge social butterfly. As I am a celibate, gay Christian and pastor, I am passionate about LGBT+ inclusion in the church and opening people’s minds to think in more nuanced ways about sexuality, and I am always willing and ready to nerd out about philosophy or theology.
Reverend Brandon Brazier
A native of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Pastor Brandon Frazier has served diligently in the ministry since childhood. He accepted Christ at the age of 6 and surrendered to the call of God at the age of 14. His work extends into higher education where he is a campus spiritual advisor for Coastal Carolina University for the Coastal Inspirational Ambassadors. Pastor B is very active in the community serving several organizations such as The Alliance for Full Acceptance, Grand Strand Pride, Boys & Girls Club, Kiwanis, A Father’s Place, etc. He has been privileged to use his gift throughout his professional and ministerial career, mentoring people to maximize their potential.
In 2018, God gave him the vision to begin a ministry and from that vision, the ONE Community Fellowship was formed. Since its inception ONE has hosted several conferences and has now grown into One Reach Ministries. He has a passion for ministering to young people, guiding this generation to love greater and experience God more. An effective communicator of God’s Word, Pastor B uses his practical and dynamic teaching style to help people apply the timeless truths of Scripture to their everyday lives. One of his favorite scriptures is Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” His Motto is: Go get the best... Never settle for less... Let God do the rest!
