Michael Yager

Director of Teen and Campus Ministries

Michael became a disciple in 2007 while a freshman at Virginia Tech University in the Roanoke Valley Church of Christ. While there he helped grow a vibrant campus ministry with the assistance of many faithful friends. With the passionate examples of leadership, he desired to see God use his life in whatever way possible, so upon graduating with a degree in Food Science and Technology in 2011, he immediately went to help plant the Kanawha Valley Church of Christ in West Virginia, leading the Singles Ministry. Living a successful Christian life while also living with same-sex attractions as both a teen and campus student, Michael is more than qualified to serve in the teen and campus ministries of Strength in Weakness.

Brandon Redler

Transgender Healing Ministry 

After graduating college in 2009, Brandon became a disciple of Christ in the Orlando Church of Christ in Orlando, Florida, where he is still a member today. He has struggled with transgender issues since early childhood and, prior to becoming a disciple, he lived as a woman for six years. He also is both same- and opposite-sex attracted and acted on these attractions with others from early childhood through college. Since becoming a disciple, he has lived as a man and has not acted on his same-sex attractions in any way. His experiences have enabled him to encourage many of his brothers and sisters in Christ and help those who face challenges like his.

Brandon received his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and his Master of Accounting from the University of Florida in 2009 and he is licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in Florida. He worked at a CPA firm in Orlando for four years after graduating college and has been employed by Disney in Orlando doing corporate tax work since 2013.
