About Brandonacox
Joined November 2016
I'm a Pastor. My wife and I planted Grace Hills Church with one other family and five years in, about 450 people attend now. Our greatest thrill is in seeing broken people find hope and healing.

I'm also Editor and Online Community Facilitator of Pastors.com, Pastor Rick Warren's online global ministry to pastors and church leaders. In seven years in the role, we've grown pastors.com's readership to about a quarter of a million email subscribers.

I'm a Leadership Coach. I coach about a dozen leaders per month and help them punch through growth obstacles, get unstuck, and go to the next level in their leadership and their organization's growth.

I wrote a book called Rewired (available on Amazon), about how to leverage social media to get the message out. I sometimes help organizations design their website and online social media presence. And I run a few too many blogs and websites and am fascinated by the entire concept of leadership and influence.

And I'm an entrepreneur. That's why I'm here. I love learning from creative people who are out to change the world.

My first and greatest priority and source of joy is not my career but rather my faith and my family - my sweet wife, Angie, and our three precious kids!

Hi Brandon,
May I ask this question: is Pastors.com created via wealthyaffiliate? The reason I ask is I try to understand if I have worked on sth right in order to accomplish what I need to accomplish - create a website for my ministry.
Thanks a lot. I appreciate your help!!!
Belinda.

Pastors.com isn't hosted by Wealthy Affiliate, but all of my other sites are. But they're all based on Wordpress, which is what Wealthy Affiliate's platform is based on.

Hi Brandon,
Hope you have a good day in our Lord!
Do you have a chance to see my previous message yet?
I repeat here below. Thanks, Belinda.

Hi Brandon,
I need your help again.
I have upgraded to Premium.
After I completed Level 1 lessons, that means I have created my website. How can I launch my website besides view it on the Dashboard?

I am trying to create a website for my ministry. Am I on the right track via wealthyaffiliate? The website I created is wbtc-cdm (at siterubix of course). How can I launch my website, or in other words, is it function now as I intend to? I have chosen Smartline as you suggested. I believe I have created a framework. I can create a link and access the link when it is clicked. How can I point to a pdf document or PPT?

Thanks in advance and thanks a lot!

By the way, I still don't know what's the difference of the 'Yes' or 'No' response to the question 'Need community help with your question?'. I am going to choose 'No' on this question to be sent to you. Thanks.
Belinda.

Hi Brandon,
I have created my website wbtc-cdm (at siterubix..com).
I think I have accidentally deleted the SEO Plugin. How can I restore or reinstall it? I have created Pages and Save Draft all of them, activated the EWWW Plugin?

I have chosen the theme Omega as Smartline is for Premium only.
Thanks,
Belinda.

Hi Brandon,
I have sent the following questions to Kyle online at WA site yesterday but I did not get responses yet. Can you help?
- I would like to confirm if I have created the website wbtc-cdm (at siterubix).
Is it the website will only be created after a theme (design) has been successfully chosen? Thanks!

- Is the Premium fee in USD or CAD?

- Creating a website with a free domain, the domain will be "siterubix".
Creating a website with a domain (Own), does it mean any existing domain like "wycliffe..ca"?

- Can I change to another theme after I have created a website with a certain theme?
Can a website have more than 1 theme selected for it?

- May I know which theme has been used for the website 'How to lose belly fat today' in the Lesson sample?

One more question: what result will be for me to choose 'Yes' or choose 'No' to the question 'Need community help with your question?' when I send out a question like this one to you?

For yesterday's questions, I have sent with 'No' to this question. Now I am going to try 'Yes'. Thanks.

Thanks,
Belinda.

Brandon, nice to hear from you. I look forward to getting to know you my new WA friend. Sorry about the delay in responding but I am a bit slow at the moment. Trying to do too many things at once.

I left you a message on your blogging site.

Keep working hard, having fun and don’t forget to ask questions.

A very nice boss once told me, ‘Helen, when you ask a silly question everyone else breathes a collective sigh of relief because they don’t have to!’ And that is so true. No question is silly so ask away.

If I can’t help I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Now let us keep in touch.

Ciao
Helen

Good morning Brandon I know this morning you are in service praising God and leading men, women and children to Christ, Praise the Lord.

Thank you for hitting me back on how to up load Divi Themes to my Wordpress on this site, but i tried several times and it tells me it can not find it or the folder that I am telling it to unzip nothing is there. I know it works because before joining Weathy Affiliate I downloaded Wordpress to my computer and Divi and I was able to upload it to Wordpress.

So the question is what I am doing wrong?

Greetings Brandon and thank you for the follow!

My goodness, you get to edit for Rick Warren!!! That is beyond cool and incredible!!! What you shared reminds me of what the Word says in Ephesians 3:20, about GOD being able to provide more than we can even THINK to ask for imagine!

May you continue to rely on GOD's immeasurable sufficiency!

Hello Brandon,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

Sounds like you are doing a lot of good work. I am also a pastor; but I'm more like associate pastor at a small rural church. I'm also worship leader. Lol. We don't really want to get big; but I wish we had more young people attending. I will check out pastors.com.

Thanks for including me in your network. I have followed you in return. I hope you have an enjoyable and prosperous journey here at WA. Jeannie

Thank you for inviting me to follow, Brandon! At WA I'm a newbie, but my perspectives are long-term. Reading the profiles and sites of the people here is one of the things I'll do a lot, going forward. In the two weeks since I joined, the response has been encouraging! This community is genuine, diverse, and sincere - and there is much to learn.

The Bible is not unknown to me. I have come to the conclusion that there is no other ethics in this world that can compare.

Brandon, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Brandon.

I have managed to build a solid stream of income and if you want to private message me I would be more than happy to network with you and share exactly what it is that I do and how I do it. It is completely achievable and I've managed to tap into a niche that has AMAZING growth potential I'm also more than willing to learn from you.

Hope to speak with you soon. Thank you.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)
