Bradford Green is the campus minister at TCU. Originally from Murfreesboro, TN, he graduated from Lipscomb University in 2008 and moved to the mountains of East Tennessee.

He enjoys reading, Tennessee football, smoking meats, and fussing with his beard.

Cristina is a native of Houston, TX and graduated from TCU — where she was active in RUF — in 2008 and from RTS Charlotte in 2013 (ThM). She’s also a Master Gardener, and less formally a master at baking chocolate chip cookies and finding good food in Fort Worth. The Greens met working at Young Life’s Wilderness Ranch in Colorado and were married in 2011. From ’13-‘19 they planted a new RUF work at Hendrix College in Conway, AR.

Ben & Anna Graber

ben.anna.graber@gmail.com

The Graber’s serve long-term with Mission to the World’s team in Munich, Germany, where they support a German church plant on the city’s drastically under-churched east side as well as Martin Bucer Seminary, a multi-site Reformed seminary based in Germany. Ben serves in preaching, worship, and the church’s leadership team, while Anna helps to lead the children’s Sunday school program and discipleship for women. At the seminary, Ben is an instructor in Old Testament and tutors a number of students through MBS’ guided self-study programs.

Their vision is to see Munich—once a bastion of the German Counter-Reformation and now a highly secular global city—become home to a large, healthy network of Reformed evangelical churches and a launching pad for pastors, church planters, counselors, ministry workers, and missionaries who will bring the gospel throughout German-speaking Europe and build up the Church in the knowledge and love of Christ.

Ben and Anna have four children: Peter (b. 2013), Lucas (b. 2015), Lilias (v. 2017), and Owen (b. 2019).

Doug & Masha Shepherd

The Shepherds minister on an international church planting team, seeking to plant church planting churches in L’viv and the western region of Ukraine. This team seeks to raise up the next generation of missionaries from the United States and the Ukraine Presbyterian Church to reach Ukraine and the world.

Doug explains, “Our focus is planting a church planting church via hospitality based, modeling and training in the Ukrainian language. We are seeking to focus on children’s, women’s, men’s, university, orphan, and elderly ministry. We seek to have a worship service that is appropriate for the Ukrainian context that displays the transcendence and immanence of God while providing Reformed teaching that seeks to engage all areas of life with the Gospel.”

The Shepherds have three children: Chaz, Nika, and Sophia.

Please pray for the Shepherds as they love God and that they would grow in understanding of humility, forbearance, grace, and love. Also pray for the young believers as they seek to take leadership for the first time in their lives.

Gene & LuAnn Bowman

Hispanic Leadership Initiative (HLI) was officially formed in January 2012. Gene joined HLI in February 2013. HLI is a network of PCA churches, institutions, and individuals who are committed to raising up Hispanic leadership for Christ. HLI is committed to preparing Hispanic men and women for ministry in the PCA.

Gene and LuAnn were married in August 1974 and have three children – Jennifer, Sara, and Mark (all married) – and seven grandchildren.

Gene says, “Hispanics within the United States have, and will continue, to change the face of our nation. We, as the PCA, are lagging in our outreach efforts to American Hispanics and their inclusion into our churches. It gives me great satisfaction to be a part of an organization that can do something about that! The part I enjoy most is being able to organize this effort, and use my gifts in multi-media to proclaim our message. The vision that HLI feels called by the Lord to accomplish is huge. We ask God for wisdom, understanding of cultures, how to help Hispanic men wade through ordination in the PCA, how to help PCA churches better understand and adapt to the Hispanic communities around them, and the financial resources to make it happen.”

Angi & Remy Ngumbu

The Ngumbus work for Wycliffe/SIL in Brazzaville, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Their ministry is to support Congolese churches and language communities in doing Bible translation. Angi’s role as linguistics coordinator is to help with all the linguistics needed before a Bible translation project begins. This includes developing an alphabet and way of writing, as well as studying the grammar and discourse analysis. Remy’s job is project funding. This includes budgets and relating to donors, as well as training in finance and helping language communities to find creative sources for financing their language development projects.

Angi says, “I really enjoy diving into languages that very few people have studied and discovering how they are all different. God has made each language unique and left and imprint of Himself in every culture. Part of my job is to discover those things.”

Pray for God to build up a vision for Bible translation in the DRC. Pray for the Ngumbus to always walk closely with God and to hear where He is leading them.

Worship with Us!
