It is official—we have hired a new full-time Associate Minister of Youth and 
Education! We are very pleased to welcome Brazos Condra to our church staff.
Brazos has served as full-time Youth/Associate Minister for the past four years at 
First Christian Church in Lufkin TX. His duties there included Youth ministry, 
Children’s ministry, and working with the pastor and staff in other ministry areas 
including leading in weekly worship and all special worship services.
While in Lufkin, Brazos has been invited into leadership roles in the North East Area 
youth camping and rallies program, serving as Chi Rho Council Chair, Vice Chair, 
and Chair of the Youth Rep Council (high school-age leaders like our Central Area 
Officers). He has worked as a camp director, been a leader at the last two Disciples 
Mission Trips which our youth attended, and just finished a week at Christian Youth 
Leadership Seminar along with our own Graham Watson. We are very excited about 
this opportunity to bring full-time staff leadership to our church’s youth ministry, by 
a young man with strong experience and a deep passion for serving Christ.
 Brazos grew up in Abilene, so this is a coming-home move for him. He attended 
Abilene High School along with our friend Brett Coe. He graduated from ACU in 
2001 with a degree in Business Administration—and with a wonderful wife, Katie!
Brazos and Katie have a 4 year old daughter Avonlea, and a 2 year old son Pecos.
Brazos is an active outdoorsman, a fine singer and song-leader, enjoys acting/drama, 
and has worked in pottery-making. He also served for 7 years in volunteer leadership 
for ACU Leadership Camps. He is a Commissioned Minister in the Christian Church 
(Disciples of Christ).
