Meet Our Leaders
Brandon Philpott - Lead Pastor
Hi! For all 13 years that we've been a church, we’ve said: “It’s all about Jesus!” We exist to make His name great and to inspire everyone to follow Him. I’ve devoted my life to following Jesus, leading to mission, serving the city, loving all people, and preaching the Bible. I was born in 1974 and grew up in Windsor where my family has lived since the early 1900s. This is my home. This is my city. After High School, I attended Golden Grain Bible College and Seminary in Ventura, California. In 2008, we launched what is now NEWSONG CHURCH with just a dozen friends in our family room. More than anything else, I am a family man first. I've been married 21 blissful years to the love of my life, Jill. Enjoying every season of our greatest endeavor, raising our two amazing kids. Our 13 year old son and our 10 year old daughter are our pride and joy. And we are engaged in this adventure together, giving everything we are and everything we have to advance the church and further the gospel.
Cameron Bowen - Worship Pastor
I LOVE music. Even more, I love that I get to lead people into encounters with Jesus through the expression of worship. After earning a degree in Biology, I served as a high school teacher for 2 years before God called me back to ministry. I'm passionate about continually learning new things, spending time with my friends, playing sports, exercising, songwriting, reading, and watching comedy shows with my wonderful wife, Autumn.
Meghan Rucker - NextGen Pastor
I have served at NEWSONG in many areas of Children’s & Family ministry for the past 10 years! I have a passion for influencing the next generation, and believe in the importance of partnering with families to make that possible, and it brings me the truest of joys! I have been married to my wonderful husband, Michael, for twelve years and we have five beautiful children with a family motto "Ruckers Rally," and believe me, we live life to the fullest!! I love adventures and you’ll find me exploring the great outdoors as often as possible, that is if I’m not trying to discover the best burger joint in town, or lounging with a good cup of coffee and book in hand!
Mark Wilmarth - Teaching Pastor
I surrendered my life to Christ at the age of 20 (47 years ago!). I remember sensing early on that the Lord was calling me to the life of a pastor. I love God’s word and every opportunity to teach it at NEWSONG. I also love hanging out with other pastors, and have played a lead role with pastors and churches in Windsor and Sonoma County. I have been happily married to my best friend Starla for 35 years. We have four children and seven grandchildren! We enjoy traveling, binge-watching TV shows, and our silver Standard Poodle, Sophie.
