Pastors & Staff

Justin Braker

Lead Pastor

Prior to moving to Newton Justin lived in Missouri. He grew up on a farm and attended Ozark Christian College where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Christian ministry. He married his wife Andrea in 1998 and they have 4 children. Justin worked as a purchasing manager while serving as a volunteer Family Minister at their home church. In 2013 they moved to Newton to join the staff of NCC.
 Justin enjoys starting home repairs. (If it said, completing Andrea would need to have a word.) Justin and his family enjoy serving at the church together with others. They like to spend time at the lake and doing other relaxing outdoor activities.
