BRANDON INKLES

AREA DIRECTOR, UPPER EAST SIDE

Fun Fact:
I was a Huggies diaper model as a baby
​ Born and raised on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Brandon is thrilled to return home and invest in the lives of adolescents and adults in his neighborhood. He first experienced Young Life through volunteering in his church youth group and was drawn to the intentionality and excellence of the ministry. While in the Boston area for college, Brandon served as a Young Life leader for 3 years at a local high school. ​

​ “Showing up in the lives of high school and middle school students is necessary in a culture marked by pressure and anxiety. As a product of ministry in New York City, I am blessed to now have the chance to lead a charge of hope throughout the community I came from.” ​

Fun Fact:
​ I was fed by Tim Tebow on Good Morning America during a cook-off between Tebow and Joe Montana. Go Gators!
​ Jess was born and raised in a small town in central Florida but she has been calling NYC home for the last several years. She is passionate about helping others learn to live life in relationship with Jesus and is so excited to get to do that on the Upper East side.
