Brandon Carmichael was raised in a Christian home in the Southern Tier of New York. He was saved at the age of six and baptized at age eight. It was after his freshman year of college that he began to sense the Lord directing him into full-time ministry. He met Emily in 2004, and they graduated together from Piedmont Baptist College in Winston-Salem, NC in 2008. They were married three weeks later.

Emily grew up in a pastor’s home. She spent her early years in Maine, where her father pastored a church. She was saved at the age of 5, and from an early age sensed the Lord was directing her into ministry. When she was 11 years old her father was called to be the first full-time pastor of Victory Baptist Church. She spent her adolescent and teen years here at Victory. After she graduated from High School, she went to study at Piedmont Baptist College, where she met Brandon.

Brandon and Emily have served as missionaries of our church since 2010 and spent their four years of deputation based at VBC, serving with our church throughout that time. After 5 ½ years on the mission field of Brazil, the Lord has directed them back to Albion for Brandon to serve as Pastor of our church. They have been members of Victory Baptist Church since 2016.

Brandon and Emily were joined by their daughter Chloe in 2014, and by their daughter Grace in 2019. They are expecting #3 in November of 2020.
