Our Leadership


Brandon and Emily Walsh

Brandon & Emily grew up in South Western New Hampshire (Peterborough & Dublin) and were married in 2009. They love good food, campfires, boating on the Great Bay, good art,  and hiking. They have lived all over; San Diego, New York City, Durham, North Carolina, and most recently Kigali, Rwanda.  They have three lively children, Elsa (7), Ivan (5), and Iris (3). 


Brandon is an Anglican Priest (Pastor) and holds an M.Div from Duke Divinity School, and an MBA from Fitchburg State University.  Brandon spent the majority of his ministry working for the Anglican Church of Rwanda, where he helped build a large preschool education and nutrition program for the Gasabo Diocese and started an English Language service at Holy Trinity Cathedral.


After years of prayer and reflection with Bishop Steve Breedlove and others, the Walshes moved back to the USA in 2020 to plant a church on the seacoast of New Hampshire, with the Diocese of Christ Our Hope.
