Kurt & Brooke are simply two lovers of Jesus and each other. God gripped them with His heart for missions, in their teens and they can't seem to get it out of their system ever since. The cities and nations they have ministered in have changed over the years but their call to the nations remains strong. 

They have had the amazing opportunity to travel to over 20 nations. In doing so they have had the honor to help train-up missionaries from over 30 nations while staffing the Harvest School Of Missions in Pemba, Mozambique. Even when they are home they are living among the nations in the culturally diverse area of South St. Louis, MO where they currently reside. Kurt and Brooke founded and lead Freedom Rising, the Iris Global Missions Base in St. Louis. They are blessed to have a son Kaden and daughter Lolly who are missionaries in the making. 


In addition to all they do internationally , Kurt and Brooke serve in a pastoral role on the leadership team of Kingdom Church in St. Louis. When all is said and done, their prayer is that you love Jesus with everything and surrender all to Him.
