Meet Nick Brandt

Although a sixth-generation Texan, Nick Brandt has lived all over the country and parts of the world as an Air Force brat, learning to cherish and thrive in the diversity of cultures and people. After graduating from The University of Texas at Austin, he began a career in the corporate marketplace consulting in leadership development and organizational management, before following a calling into full-time vocational ministry. Since 2006, Nick has served in ministry, the corporate marketplace, entertainment, and non-profit sectors, and now utilizes his diverse skillset and network to lead and direct events, experiences, initiatives, and projects that aim to advance kingdom-minded endeavors. His energy is spent partnering with and serving the needs of individuals, organizations, ministries, and churches as they seek to accomplish their missions.

Nick has worked on staff with The Flippen Group, Young Life, Passion Conferences, Passion City Church, The Well Austin Community Church, and he is currently project managing and directing events for Pulse, as well as other national organizations. He completed his Master’s degree in Christian Leadership and Biblical Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary, and is also currently the founder and Executive Director of The Gathering ATX – unique monthly nights of worship, word, and prayer in the heart of Austin, Texas.

Additionally, Nick holds 25+ years working professionally as a Screen Actors Guild actor, host, and model within the national entertainment industry, including a recurring role on the Emmy winning TV Series Friday Night Lights, Tyler Perry’s Too Close to Home, and several commercials such as Nike, Chevy, AT&T, Gold’s Gym, The NBA, Xcel Energy, and TJ Maxx.

On a day of rest, you’ll find Nick outdoors with his black Labrador Retriever, Brooks, on a bike, at the lake, or playing basketball on campus at UT Austin. He enjoys watching Texas Longhorn sports, the San Antonio Spurs, or taking in the delicious food and music scene of Austin, Texas.
