Brandon served as our band leader for years before stepping into the role of worship pastor. He and his wife Aleisha have grown up in the Myrtle Beach area, where they are raising their daughter Emma, son Haiden, and new baby Brooklyn Faith. Brandon is a small business owner and seasoned leader who is growing in his role as a preacher. Aleisha also works on staff, charged with keeping the team in fellowship as well as planning church events. Ask Brandon about his famous chicken wings, and don't ask Aleisha to cheer for anyone but the Gamecocks.
Jack and Jan moved to Myrtle Beach from Australia and also from everywhere! After years traveling the world as missionaries. Their first charge was joining the leadership and development team of the newly planted YWAM (Youth With a Mission) base. Through their time at YWAM, the Narvels became positive voices in the community, leading events, prayer walks, and combined services that served to unite Myrtle Beach ministries with the general public. Along with their backgrounds that include marketing, communications, teaching, and development, the Narvels brought their vast experience to be a great fit as overseers of GreenFeet International (GFI), the missions outreach organization founded by Journeychurch. They laid a foundation for productive outreach and partnering within our communities, and have recently migrated to administration of Grace Fellowship International Network, the credentialing and resource organization for interdependent, non-denominational churches that has been created by the founders of Journeychurch.
