Brandon Murray is just a common young man who has ventured into the unknown where Christ dwells. For the past 22 years, his full surrender to Jesus Christ has led him into the "old time" , Pentecostal-Holy Ghost way! Consequently, 10 of these years, he has been the pastor of LHC (Landmark Holiness Church) were God has graciously blessed his efforts! There are hundreds of souls who have had the gospel preached to them and many have come to Christ! The church started with 7 and has now grown to a faithful 30 people.
He has mentored several young men who came to him confused and mislead in life. Pastor Brandon remains accountable to us (his congregation) as we remain accountable to him. He was raised in Hobart, Ok. by his mother, the late Miss. Angie Murray. Pastor Brandon has pursued the ministry of serving Christ and others ever since he gave his prodigal life to Christ at The Lighthouse Assembly of God, (Pastors were the late, Clarence and Kay Lankford), where he was baptized at the age of 16. Later he found that he needed the Holy Ghost, his hunger sent him in pursuit! A few months past and in the fall of 1994 at a cottage prayer meeting pastor received the Holy Ghost, (evidence of speaking in tongues). It was then he felt a pull to the ministry and wasn’t sure what to do, he began to seek God! It was already prophesied that if he would sanctify his life God would fill him with the Holy Ghost and use him in the ministry. It was the summer of 1995 at C.O.Y.C. youth camp, Pastor Brandon accepted the call to preach and soon God lead him to Blair, Ok. He then sat under the ministry of Pastor Billy Ray Hudson at Trinity Holiness Church from 1996-2004. He was ordained in the church and also met his lovely bride Hayley (Boyd) Murray. It was August of 2004 that he moved in as intern pastor at Landmark and soon became the full time pastor. The morale was low at Landmark when Pastor Brandon and his family arrived! He and Sister Hayley immediately went to work. They came with a vision and soon found God’s purpose for the church. Pastor still jokes, that he had been married for five years and didn't know his wife could play the piano, until he came here! He continues to lead us by taking large strides of faith into uncharted territory. We currently work with the D.O.C. (Department of Corrections), in there re-enrty program. We offer spiritual mentor-ship on a professional basis. Many of these men have gone back into their community and became productive citizens. Pastor has personally seen and heard from them and gave good reports. To be honest, not all are success stories! They make the choice! The Marlow First Baptist Church gave us a bus in 2009, we actually paid $1.00 dollar for it! Pastor was compelled to start reaching out to the homeless in the Lawton community and God has worked many wonders ever since. We, as a church have fed the hungry, clothed the needy and took in strangers. All this for the glory of God! God has been doing some amazing things under the leadership of Pastors Brandon and Hayley Murray. His children are a great blessing also: Ciara (there oldest 17yr), Macy (14yr) and Braxton (9yr) they bring great joy with their smiling faces and sweet spirit! We all know God has a great future for this fine example of a Godly family at Landmark Holiness Church! " I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work" St. Jn.9:4
