The Brazee Family | Germany
Brandon and Marcie, along with their children Kaitlyn and Hudson, are serving the Lord in Baden. They will serve with the Foursquare Germany national church for a couple of years, ministering to refugees, learning the language and culture, and identifying and investing in young leaders. Following that time, they will plant a church in either Berlin or Munich, both cities that currently do not have a Foursquare church.
Brandon grew up in Seattle and Marcie is from Winnipeg, Manitoba. They met while serving as youth leaders at Eastside Foursquare Church in Bothell, WA. Brandon and Marcie have since served as church planters in Madison Wisconsin, before spending 10 years on staff back at Eastside Foursquare in various pastoral roles.

BETH Delaney | Ireland
Sending Church: Newberg Foursquare
Beth is sent out from Newberg Foursquare Church in Newberg, Oregon, where she served on staff for several years. While at Newberg, Beth helped develop the Middle School Youth program and missions. Beth currently serves in Cork, Ireland at a ministry whose focus is to reach those who are disenfranchised from the church and to bring unity amongst believers. She works with a team of people who developed and founded Unbound, a ministry that shares the freedom we have in Christ in a language people understand. “Our heart is to see people interact with the love and peace of the Gospel and be connected to churches that will help them grow in Christ,” Beth says.
THe griffith Family | GREAT BRITAIN
A recent survey of British adults showed 53% self-identifying as having "no religion." Other research has suggested that less than 2% of British people are followers of Jesus. Meanwhile, the world has moved to the UK, with over 40 unreached or nominally-reached people groups residing in London alone. But how will they hear the Gospel?
We, along with our three sons (David, Charlie and Ransom), are passionate about reaching the unreached and helping them become disciple-makers who transform global culture. We have started our work in Cheltenham, a predominantly British town, as we aim to see a new wave of discipleship and church planting among the British. This will give us a firm foundation from which to engage the Global City of London.
After less than 12 months we launched Journey Kids (www.journeykids.co.uk), a ministry to elementary school aged children, teaching them about who Jesus is and what it means to follow him. We are also engaging the creative community, building deep relationships with families outside of the church, and finding ways to partner with local churches.
We are looking for more partners who will join us in serving Britain to reach the world. If you'd like more information, please contact us at https://www.allingriffs.com/contact-us/ to arrange a Skype call. We would love to share more of our story and see how it might connect with the life of your local church as you seek to make disciples of all nations.
Gabe and Nicole Barreiro have a church plant coaching role in their lives.

The TAFT Family | Playa del Carmen
Sending Church: Westside Foursquare Church
Steve and Holly plan to be in the field indefinably, unless the Lord instructs them differently. They have built a Spanish Foursquare Church that is serving up to 70 people in the Sunday service. They have a children’s ministry and are doing Ministry Training Institute (in Spanish and English), which is the curriculum John and Sonja Decker have written. Also, they serve Mexico by taking this training to other regions in Mexico so they can begin an MTI in their churches. Women’s and Men’s ministry needs are being met through them with English speaking group settings and one on one discipling and mentoring. Recently, they are training an intern from the Pacific Northwest under FMI . Other ministries include: mentoring and discipling their Foursquare Mexican pastors, being on the council in their church as Elders, and working on projects in a Mayan village alongside another missionary. They currently have two mission teams a year come to work on various projects. This next year will probably increase by at least one more team.
