Pastor Breonus M. Mitchell, Sr. (Dad), First Lady Lakisha Mitchell (Ma), and I on Resurrection Sunday 2010 after my public affirmation of my Call to Preach at Greater Grace Temple Community Church
Pastor Breonus M. Mitchell, Sr. is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Greater Grace Temple Community Church in Nashville, Tennessee (est. Sunday, April 27th, 1997). Since I was born, he has been very visible and instrumental in my development as a young man.
He is a man of integrity, relevance, and empowerment. His ability to provide a competent and sustainable approach to preaching with direct biblical authority every week is awe-inspiring and convicting in areas that I could do better. Pastor Mitchell has sown so much into me, and I am forever grateful for his influence.
On Friday, March 26th, 2010, the date I was baptized 7 years ago, I humbly & privately accepted my Call to Preach the Word of God & publically affirmed it on Resurrection Sunday: April 04th, 2010 at Greater Grace Temple Community Church under the leadership and prayers of Pastor Mitchell. I am excited and delighted to learn and shadow under a shepherd that genuinely and boldy is in love with Christ and His Church. He is a scholar in his own right, and seeks to proclaim the Gospel with as much accuracy as possible through expository preaching.
He is married to the beautiful and humble, Lakisha Mitchell and is the father of Breonus M. Mitchell, Jr. Pastor unconditionally loves his family and has been more than a Pastor to me. He has been a father to me, & Lakisha a mother. I love and appreciate them so much and as they continue to push and support me, I pray blessings and promotion in their ministries.
To the best Pastor in the world, Dad: you are loved, you are valued, and you deserve the best!!!
Your son and mentee,
Brandon J. Smithson, Nashville, Tennessee
