I was raised in a home where Jesus Christ was the focus. I was saved at the age of five years old when my mom shared with me how Jesus paid the penalty for my sin and I could be forgiven. I’m thankful for the role my parents played in guiding me toward the Lord and His word! I attended the Word of Life Bible Institute in 1996. During my 2nd year, I dedicated my life to missions at the Missions Conference. The Lord then led me to a year with the Impact Team and 2 years in the Intern and Discipleship Program. I was accepted as a Word of Life (WOL) missionary to Portugal in 2001 and got married to Leilani in 2002.

Brandon has been leading worship for over 15 years, traveling to locations all around the world spreading the Gospel, and encouraging the church through song. Growing up, he was introverted, and did not like the attention that came when people realized his musical talents, so he hid them for many years… It wasn’t until he was 15 that the Lord was able to finally get a hold of his heart and reveal to him that his talents and abilities were not to hide in a closet, nor to make a name for himself, but to point others to Jesus and His kingdom.

I was raised in a pastors home so I heard the Gospel from a very young age. I remember being in the car with my dad and asking him how could I have Jesus in my heart like my older brother. That day he walked me back through the beautiful truth of how Christ died in my place to pay for my sins. And that He rose again to prove He had defeated death and the grave. HE told me that by grace through faith I could have a personal relationship with Christ.

Bonnie and I both grew up in Christian families, and came to faith in Jesus as children. We attended the Word of Life Bible Institute from 1998 until 2000. It was there that we met, and began serving the Lord together. We saw the influence that Word of Life missionaries had in both of our churches, and with our youth leaders. We wanted to have that same kind of ministry: encouraging and training youth leaders, sharing the gospel, and seeing youth challenged to serve the Lord with their lives.
After being accepted as missionaries with Word of Life Local Church Ministries in 2003, we spent the next ten years serving in eastern and central Michigan. In 2014, we were asked to relocate to the MidAtlantic region.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38,39
