Our Associate Pastor

Lenny Brunson

Associate Pastor




Lenny is thankful for the honor to serve as LIFT Church’s associate pastor overseeing congregational care initiatives that contribute to the growth and health of LIFT Church.  He and his beautiful wife, Teresa, moved to Fort Myers in 2016 and love the fellowship and family atmosphere of LIFT Church.


Lenny has spent more than 15 years in lay ministry including serving as a deacon, children’s and youth leader, and small group leader/facilitator in several nondenominational Christian faith communities.  He and Teresa have worked together serving the homeless population in Nashville, Tennessee, as well as participating in a life-changing mission trip to Haiti.  Teresa has also counseled women in prison and has a heart for the victims of human trafficking.   They have a passion for helping others and love seeing people come to faith in Jesus Christ.


Lenny is a baccalaureate graduate of Excelsior College and earned his master’s degree from Webster University.   He began his professional career as a cryptologic linguist with the U.S. Air Force, but quickly realized his calling was information technology.  In addition to his ministerial duties, Lenny is a seasoned executive working full time in the healthcare industry.


When not working, leading LIFT groups, or preaching, Lenny loves spending every waking moment with Teresa.  They thoroughly enjoy doing anything outdoors including sailing, scuba diving, kayaking/paddleboarding and cycling.  The couple has two grown children living in the Nashville, Tennessee area and are expecting their first grandchild in 2018.
