Brent Davis Fraser, Founder and Leader of the Sacramental Life Churches, Inc., has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of cannabis and spirituality.
After enduring a divorce, Mr. Fraser found a new love in his line of work after spending some time thinking about existential questions. One of the things he realized was about the different ‘wrongs’ and ‘rights’ of his life. He reached the conclusion that maybe the way he was living was not the best way for him to live. He persistently asked himself what more he could do to help others. Upon meditating on his questions and solutions, he found that he could help others by established a church.
One of the highlights of his career has been finding the Sacramental Life Churches, Inc. When he was in the process of trying to set up a church he has to procure a conditional use permit to use a building in the city because there was a change of use for that building. While it was an arduous process, the city of Gardena permitted that under conditional use Mr. Fraser can operate as a cannabis church free and clear of any legal interference or intervention. That has not happened in the whole United States. In his line of work, Mr. Fraser provides cannabis as a means of healing to help people like veterans and Parkinson’s disease patients. He also coordinates school and clothing drives.
Prior to establishing his place of worship in Washington, Mr. Fraser worked as an actor and was featured among several films between 1985 and 2015. Mr. Fraser is proud of his Scottish, Dutch and Austrian heritage. His heart is rooted in the Highland Clan Fraser of Lovat and Noble family trees on his father’s side. Mr. Fraser was born in Bremerton, raised in Bellingham and began his career as an actor and singer/songwriter in the Seattle live theatre and music scene in 1985. He wrote poetry as a child and learned guitar, harmonica, as well as piano and violin. His first influences were his mother’s favorites-Woody Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Jim Croce and Jackson Browne. His tastes transitioned to pop-radio, hard rock, to David Bowie and new wave, to 80s Glam, to Tom Waits. After moving to Seattle he began working in professional theatre, and as a “busker” at Pike Place Market. He was accepted to The North Carolina School of the Arts but stayed less than a year going back to Seattle to study privately with Mark Jenkins, and to work as a professional actor and musician. He worked repeatedly with The Group Theatre, in plays such as “Tamer of Horses” with William Mastrosimone, and “Tracers” with John DiFusco, but it wasn’t until he landed his first feature film role in Keith Gordon’s, The Chocolate War, that Los Angelenos took notice of his talent and encouraged him to move south. Upon arrival in Los Angeles, he landed a string of starring roles in independent features including Jezebel’s Kiss with Malcolm McDowell, Wild Orchid 2 with Nina Siemaszko and Tom Skerritt, The Dark Side of Genius with Seymour Cassel, Finola Hughes and Moon Zappa, and The Little Death with Dwight Yoakam, J.T.Walsh and Pamela Gidley. He was in David Lynch’s, Wild at Heart with Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern and New Line’s Book of Love with Chris Young and Josie Bissett.
