Senior Pastors Chad & Julie Braswell, having served at Metro Church as Associate Pastors, Worship Pastors, and both Youth & Young Adult Pastors throughout a decade and a half, have now answered God’s call to lead this local church body in its next chapter.
Both Chad & Julie came to know Jesus right here at Metro Church, where they also were married and are now raising their two daughters Rylie & Mackenzie. Their passion is to see everyone excel in their life’s purpose through a real relationship with Jesus Christ.
Founding Pastors Don and Nita Braswell were serving as Associate Pastors of a thriving church they had helped build, in Chesterfield VA, when a strong call to plant a church in Massachusetts became very clear. After a time of prayer and fasting, that calling was confirmed by the church’s leadership team, which commissioned and sent the Braswells to start what is now Metro Church.
With God’s call and the church’s blessing and support, Don and Nita and their three young children moved to Massachusetts in 1985. They held the church’s first service on Easter Sunday, with a handful of people in a living room.
Although the years from then to now were never easy, God has established His church thru the Braswell’s faithful service. His blessings are seen. Pastors Don and Nita feel humbled by what God is doing as they relentlessly continue to fulfill His call.
Everyone who walks through Metro Church’s doors, and decides to call it their church home, are continual reminders of God’s call, purpose, and promise over Pastors Don and Nita.
