Broghan Hunt | Pastor

Pastor Broghan became part of the community in 2021. Often seen with a cup of coffee or occasionally indulging in local craft brews, she’s a passionate advocate for guiding people’s faithful steps. When not discussing matters of faith, she can be found at the gym, leisurely strolling through town, or seeking friendly dogs to pet. Grateful for the journey together, Pastor Broghan looks forward to helping others discover their next faithful steps.

Raised in Southern California, he pursued academic pursuits at Biola University, Fuller Seminary, and Claremont School of Theology. Starting as a Youth Worker, Ben has been rooted in Escondido since his ordination in 2017. Apart from preaching, he cherishes moments with his wife and three kids. Spare time is often spent reading, swimming, managing household projects, or enjoying craft beer. He’s open to connecting over a drink and hearing your story.
