He started his radio career as an Advertising Rep back in the day, and now Cross Defense host Rev. Tyrel Bramwell is Pastor of St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church in Ferndale, CA, and author of several books you might know. He loves making pancakes for dinner for his wife and two kids while rocking out to 80s music, and you'll likely find him eating homemade German Chocolate Cake and drinking coffee (like a good Lutheran) out of his favorite old diner mug. When he’s not reading fairy tales and fables or watching photography and filmmaking videos on YouTube, he may be planning a trip to the Holy Land or hiking in beautiful northern California. Next time you find him on social media, ask him about the wonderful mystery of our Lord’s incarnation at Christmas, and he’ll talk with you for hours.
