Hi I'm Brandon Christensen

I love photography, I enjoy hanging out with friends, I'm a college student and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am way into photography and love exploring the beautiful world around me with a different eye for things. I'm heading to Brigham Young University after my mission to study Business Management with an emphasis on marketing. For now I am serving as a Full time missionary in the Rochester NY mission. It's such an amazing place to be with historical sites such as the Sacred Grove which is where God the Father and Jesus Christ appeared to and conversed with a man by the name of Joseph Smith in 1820.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a Mormon because of the joy it brings me. I have had a variety of experiences that points me towards this Gospel. Every time I seek out more knowledge about the Gospel of Jesus Christ it confirms to me my faith in the LDS church. The Atonement of Jesus Christ is what helps me through every day struggles. It is best summed up by: Because my faith gives me purpose and motivation to live and become better.

How I live my faith

I am currently out on a Full Time Mission! Called to Serve!

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Brandon Christensen
Mormons are not required to serve a mission. All males are asked to serve when they are 19-21 years old. However, that can serve anywhere from 18 years old to into their 20's. Females are encouraged to serve a mission if they feel that is what they should do. Missionary work is the best thing that a young adult can do for 18 months (Girls) to 2 years (Guys) at that age and time frame in their life. It is something that will best help them to learn and to grow as they go out and serve the people in the areas that they are called to serve. Sharing the Gospel is exactly what Christ did in his ministry and is what he asked the Apostles to do. By following his example we know that it is important to share the message that will change peoples lives. Show more Show less
