  • Kelly & Lenora brake

    Kelly & Lenora Brake began preaching the Gospel together in 1980 on the streets of lower Manhattan in New York City. Throughout the past 38 years of ministry their calling has carried them across nearly half of the world's nations and to more than 250 tribal and people groups in some of earth's most remote and unreached areas. Declaring the Word of God with both love and a demonstration of resurrection life, the Brakes have had the privilege to partner with tens of thousands of church and regional leaders to advance the message and method of Christ's Kingdom into places where darkness once ruled unchallenged, but now retreats before the unstoppable advance of Jesus, the Light of the World. Brake Ministries International is focusing over the coming years on equipping international church leaders, raising up and releasing the next generation of harvesters toward the completion of the Great Commission, and promoting through prayer and proclamation the current outpouring of God's Spirit upon America which is in it's beginning stages.

  • Rosie gonzales

    My name is Rosalinda Gonzales, I mostly go by Rosie. I was born in Brownsville, Texas on June 25, 1955. I have been a missionary in Matamoros, Tamaulipas Mexico for the last 29 years. I am also a gospel singer and travel the northern part of the United States singing for the Lord and sharing what we do in Mexico. Our ministry name is Middleman Ministries. We work with very needy in Matamoros sharing most importantly the good news of Jesus Christ, His love and teaching the spiritual growth, educational and physical skills. We have built homes for very poor, give out food and clothing and have a church at our ministry center in Matamoros. Gad has called me to work in Matamoros. The very first time I went to the area I work in, I left crying and wanted to build everyone a house that needed one. It took me 2 years to return. God spoke to me and said "one house at a time Rosie." So, I returned and now after building about 80 homes and 2 churches we continue to do what God has called us to. There is no greater joy, feelling and blessing than to see people's lives changed by the Power of God. There have been hundreds whose lives have been transformed through the ministry God has blessed us with. To God be all the Glory.

  • Nathan & lacey steel

    Cultivate was inspired by Nathan and Lacey's journey to freedom from mindsets and behaviors that enslaved them. Nathan struggled with a deep-rooted bitterness toward his dad, an inability to share his feelings, and a 20-year addiction to pornography. His wife, Lacey, struggled with a fear that fed her explosive anger producing a need to control people and circumstances. In 2014, after nearly eight years on staff at a church in Alaska, the Steels became full-time missionaries in Homer, Alaska serving at Alaska Bible Institute. While there, they developed and taught the Christian Living Course. During this time, they saw students set free from life-long bitterness, reunited with estranged family members, and freedom from childhood traumatic experiences. It is out of this life-changing experience that a vision was born to see the material and tools used for personal discipleship. In 2017, they moved to Texas and launched Cultivate.
