Brant Smith

Pastor Brant (previously known as “PB”) is originally from the Tahoe area and grew up in Truckee. He and his family moved to the valley 12 years ago and have been here ever since. Brant received his Bachelor’s degree in Bible and theology from the Nazarene Bible College in 2012 and his Master of Divinity from the Nazarene Theological Seminary in 2015. He has been in full-time ministry for the past 17 years, serving as a Youth Pastor and an Associate Pastor in both Sparks, Nevada, and Gridley. Brant married his wife Meredith in 2001, and they have two beautiful children—Madelyn (7) and Adin (3). Both of their children spent extensive time in the NICU and are miracles and a testament to the awesome and amazing love of God. Brant loves sports; he wrestled and played football and rugby in college. He, like Pastor Greg, is a bit of a Star Wars toy collecting nerd and has an extensive collection of Star Wars memorabilia (don’t judge!). As Adventure’s Family Pastor, Brant will develop and head up a family and marriage ministry. He has a passion for helping couples understand what a biblical relationship looks like, and loves to work with and disciple others to help them grow and become the people that God created them to be. Brant will also be the Connection Ministry lead, where he will work with the Connection Center, security team, and ushers/greeters. He will help out with many other ministries as well. He is so excited to be ministering here at Adventure Church.
