Brandon Maye is the volunteer production director at Vision Church. He was born & raised in Elizabethton, Tennessee where He graduated from ETSU with a B.S. in chemistry. He met Pastor Cole in North Carolina but was so sure of what God was doing at Vision he told Pastor Cole, “God’s doing something there, I’m going whether you go or not.” Talk with Brandon and it won’t take too long to figure out he’s not from here but it hasn’t taken long for Tucson to become home for him.
