"And [God] gave . . . some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers" Ephesians 4:11
Jackson County Baptist Church begins under the authority of Bethel Baptist Church, El Sobrante, California and Pastor David Sutton.
The Sutton Family
In July of 2020, Dr. Kent Brandenburg, who founded and pastored Bethel Baptist Church of El Sobrante, California for 33 years, came to Southern Oregon with his wife as a missionary/evangelist. He is a skilled expositor of the Bible and an accomplished author, having written three books (can purchase here). Through his leadership Jackson County Baptist Church began holding church services in downtown Medford.
In August of 2021, Pastor David Sutton, along with his family, moved to Medford from Bethel Baptist Church in El Sobrante, CA, to pastor Jackson County Baptist Church. Pastor Sutton and his wife Cathy joined Bethel in 1992 to teach in the church's Christian school, which he led as principal for 24 years. In 2003 he was ordained as a pastor.
