Brandt and Jessica Carson


In high school, Cru was instrumental in teaching Brandt exactly what it meant to have a personal, thriving relationship with God. After being discipled by Cru staff for six years, Brandt answered God’s call to move from Tennessee to California in the fall of 2013. Since then, he has been actively evangelizing and discipling students in the LA/OC high schools.

In the fall of 2014, Jessica was working as a crisis specialist with at-risk youth in the public-school system. At that time she felt called to share Christ with teenagers and immediately started volunteering with the High School ministry of Cru. That same semester, she felt the call to walk away from her “secure job and plans” and go into full-time ministry rather than pursue licensure for Social Work.

On June 27th, 2017, the Carsons received their acceptance to go full-time with Cru. Their passion is to love, cultivate, and commission the high school students in the LA/OC area through relational evangelism and discipleship.
