Brandon Bowers is the Founding and Lead Pastor of Awaken Church in Charleston, SC and is passionate about seeing people far from God awakened to life in Christ. Awaken Church was started in 2013 with nine people and has grown to over 1000 people with over 60% of weekend attenders being connected into relational disciple-making groups. Being committed to a disciple-making culture as a church, these groups are the key to having relationships develop that create a multiplying disciple-making process. Awaken launched with three small groups and now there are over 50 groups meeting weekly throughout the Charleston Metro area. In addition to leading the vision, preaching and staff of Awaken, Brandon also serves as a coach in the Relational Discipleship Network and as a Church Planting Strategist with the SC Baptist Convention.
