Brandon Brigance

Pastor Brandon is originally from the state of Arkansas (Go Razorbacks). He received several honors through his schooling and ministry, but the greatest was landing his wife Makayla. His hobbies include theology and watching New Girl...not sure if in that order though.


Pastor Brandon has many roles at Remix, but a main focus in youth and family ministry. 

CHildrens Director
Troy Burton

Troy is passionate about seeing kids come to Christ. Along with leading Remix Kids, he also serves at Missouri Baptist Children's Home.

Troy is married to Kerri and father of Katelynn and Mia. That's right, he is blessed to live in a household of ladies. 

Director of Foster Care and Adoption
Julie Boatner

Julie is an adoptive mother with children through domestic and international adoption. She has a desire to see the church meet the needs of orphans and widows. In that role, she runs our Care Closet, where we store goods and household items to help foster and adoptive needs.

Julie enjoys taking part in advancing and educating others. She is a librarian in the Parkway School District, where she was named teacher of the year (2021). Julie's favorite book is The Giver, she loves road trips, and family movie nights.  

Church administrator
Kristi Song

Kristie is the face of our office. If you call, you're probably going to talk to her. That's awesome though, because she usually has an answer. 

Kristie enjoys martial arts, photography, and everything Disney. She grew up in the church and now is proud to serve it.
