Pastor Branden Jones is the Lead Pastor of Uplifted Community Church and dedicated to a community, serve team, kingdom focus with a vision of “Being the Hands and Feet of Jesus”.  Pastor comes from a strong Pentecostal family heritage that began with his first Pastor, Grandfather, the late Rev. Vester Clevenger.  Pastor Branden has more than a decade of doctrinal and musical teaching which enables him to use his God given gifts to reach others with humor, humility, sincerity, and strength. He completed his ministry training in 2017 and received his Minister’s License through the Church of God of Prophecy.   He is a dedicated husband, father, anointed speaker, singer and musician. Although Pastor is a New England Patriots fan, don’t hold that against him.  We promise UCC has plenty of football fans working with him to show him the straight and narrow path.  All kidding aside, Pastor is a huge sports fan of the Cincinnati Reds and the Ohio State Buckeyes, but even greater than that is his love for the Lord, his family and the church. Pastor Branden is married to his favorite cook, Sister Ashley and is a loving father to “his girls” Aleah and Gracelynn.  He never knows a stranger and at UCC you enter as a guest but you leave as FAMILY.
