Reverend Raconteur is Tyrel Bramwell. Before he went to school to be a pastor, he remembers teaching a Sunday School class where one of the kids asked, “If you could be anything, what would you be?” Tyrel said, “A pastor.”
“If not a pastor, then what?” was the next question. To which Tyrel replied, “An author.”
Today Rev. Bramwell is both!
