Brandan Robertson is a progressive evangelical writer, activist, speaker, and spiritual entrepreneur who is committed to getting Jesus a second hearing among the cynical, skeptical, burned, and spiritual but not religious people. He desires to build-bridges across cultural, theological, and political divides and to help others rethink, reform, and renew what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus in our post-modern, post-Christian world.
Brandan has a B.A. in Pastoral Studies and Bible from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago and is pursuing his Masters of Theological Studies at Wesley Theological Seminary. He writes for Revangelical, Huffington Post, Red Letter Christians, Sojourners, Project:Awaken, and IMPACT Magazine and has been a featured contributor to a number of well-read outlets such as TIME Magazine and Dallas Morning News. His first book Nomad: Not-So-Religious Thoughts on Faith, Doubt, & the Journey In Between, will be published in 2015. Brandan is a frequent guest on numerous nationally syndicated radio programs and television networks such as MSNBC, The Drew Marshall Show, State of Belief, The Takeaway on NPR, and Stand Up! With Pete Dominick. Brandan has also written for and been profiled in a number of prominent newspapers and magazines including TIME Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The Oregonian.
Brandan is the host of the Project:Awaken Podcast and is also a sought after consultant to churches, denominations, and faith-based organizations on issues of the faith of the millennial generation and issues surrounding building bridges across religious, cultural, and political divides. Brandan is on staff at Faith In Public Life as the Evangelical Organizer and is the director of The RISE Network. He also serves on the board of Evangelicals For Marriage Equality and as an initiator for The Convergence Initiative. Brandan currently resides in Washington, D.C.
