The Righteous Branch

20 December 2020



Jeremiah 23:5-6


One of the names – or descriptive characteristics – of Jesus we learn in Jeremiah 23:5-6 is the “branch of righteousness.” While it may seem weird on first thought to describe someone as a “branch,” as we dig deeper into Scripture, we see how it perfectly illustrates who Jesus is, what He came to earth to accomplish, and what it means for us as we put our faith in Him.

Senior Pastor
Brett is our senior pastor. He and his family moved to Portland in 1996 to start Athey Creek Christian Fellowship. As our church has grown, Brett’s main focus has remained the same: pointing people to Jesus by teaching through God’s Word, verse-by-verse, book-by-book and chapter-by-chapter. Brett and his wife, Debbie, have three children: Brooke, Joey and Casey.
