Connections Minister

Brandon Dodd has served as the Connections Minister at Flagstone since June of 2024. Prior to his Connections Minister role, Brandon served as the Flagstone Teens Youth Minister from 2016-2024 after he graduated from Harding University where he majored in Bible & Youth and Family Ministry.

In November of 2016, Brandon married his best friend and life partner, Morgan, and together they have enjoyed building a life in NWA. They have three incredibly fun and silly kiddos, Rayna, Remmington, and Thaden, a handful of dogs, and a whole lot of love (and kids snacks literally everywhere).

As the Connections Minister, Brandon has three main focuses: Connection, Adult Education and Events. Brandon’s goal in this ministry is to fulfill the “Connect” part of Flagstone’s mission statement that through church events, classes, and service opportunities anyone that walks through our doors feels seen, known, and valuable both to this community and to God Himself. (It’s a big task!)

Originally from south Texas, Brandon loves the outdoors, hiking, and running. He enjoys woodworking in the garage, finding good food in the area with his beautiful wife, and playing video games (the not nerdy kinds he thinks…). He doesn’t take himself too seriously and is incredibly passionate about leading others into a deep relationship with their heavenly Father.
