Pastor James Brabson

Upon graduation from Bible College, Pastor James served in youth ministry for nine years in both Minnesota and Michigan. Serving the Millersburg/Onaway/Rogers City area since 2004 has allowed Pastor to develop many relationships within the communities. Now, over the last eight years, Pastor James has been the pastor of North Country. As an avid hunter and Chicago sports fan, Pastor James enjoys spending time with his family and the church here at North Country. Because of their background in youth ministry, the Brabson’s see the need for God-honoring families and desire to encourage both young and old families to glorify God through their homes. Besides the home, Pastor emphasizes expositional preaching as the foundation for the corporate worship gathering.

Pastor sits on the Executive Leadership Team for Michigan's Great Start Collaborative of the Cheboygan, Otsego, and Presque Isle Counties, as well as, serves on the advisory board for Camp CanaanLand in Michigan. God has used Pastor James as a guest speaker for family and youth camps, pastor's conferences, and wild game dinners.


God has graciously given Pastor James and his wife Bonnie four boys: Josiah, Ben, Jonas, and Clayton.  Pastor would love to hear from you at any time, you can contact him via email on our contact page.
