SoCalWMN Leadership Team

About Denise Brannen
Conference & Retreat Director

Denise Brannen is an anointed and powerful woman of God. She ministers with authority, power and clarity.  Her objective is to deliver the uncompromising teachings of the Kingdom of God so that people will be propelled into living and applying His Word. Her transparency, in teaching biblical truths and using her life as an example, is for the purpose of assisting other believers in developing a vulnerability and transparency with God, which leads to unparalleled intimacy and relationship.


She deeply desires that the body of Christ experiences being in the presence of God, be in a position to hear his voice, and experience worship that is a part of the daily lifestyle of a believer. Pastor Denise exemplifies and encourages living victoriously, in the face of adversity by daily study, a lifestyle of prayer and fasting, and worship within God's presence.


While attending Open Door Family Worship Center she accepted the call of God in ministry under the leadership of Dr. Gwendolyn and Apostle Charles Matthews. Her training in ministry consists of attending the School of the Prophets, Saints Walking in the Word, and Ministers in Training (MIT) Schools all of San Diego, CA. In addition, she serves in multi-areas of ministry including a teacher of the International Institute of Spiritual Development (IISD) and a Chief Intercessor of Open Door Family Worship Center. 


In 2013, she was licensed in Ministry.  In February 2016, she received her ordination as a Pastor and later that year, she launched Breaking Free Ministry (Isa. 61:1-3) under the covering of her Pastors. In 2018, she became a Partner at the City of Hope International Church where she currently serves as Assistant Prayer Director under the leadership of Bishop Terell Fletcher.


Her focus in life today is doing her part to advance the Kingdom of God, walk in absolute Purpose and Power!

SoCalWMN is delighted to have Denise Brannen serve on its Leadership Team in this season!
