He went on to graduate from Georgia Tech in computer engineering on a 4 year academic scholarship. While a junior at Georgia Tech he became an independent distributor for Supralife International and was their youngest 5 star leader in history with over 800 distributors under him in less than 6 months.
When Rev. Bronner received his driver’s license at the age of 16 he instantly began helping other youth by driving the youth church bus every Sunday and mentoring underprivileged youth. At the age of 27 he accepted his call into the ministry.
