Brett was born in Ontario, Canada in 1985. When he was 5 years old he and his family moved to America to start a new life. As a young boy Brett grew up in the Church listening to the word of God and being poured into by many faithful men and women of God. When he was just 9 years of age he dedicated his life at the altar to follow Jesus but at 11 years old, through the schemes of Satan and the pressure of his peers, Brett was introduced to a life of drugs, partying, pleasure, and sin. He left the path of light and began walking in the darkness. Addiction, crime, lust, greed, gangs, violence and evil soon became his new path. At 17 years old after being arrested numerous times and expelled from high school, he found himself completely broken, tormented by demons, afflicted by sickness, and totally lost. Until one-night he had a radical encounter with Jesus! While being bedside & high on drugs he began to pray and cry out to the one He once loved, asking Jesus for forgiveness and freedom. The voice of the Lord Jesus Christ then spoke 3 words that changed his life forever! The Lord said ‘’IT IS DONE!’’ Son, your sins are forgiven! Brett finally returned to his Father’s house, just like the prodigal! Shortly after he was miraculously healed of his infirmities, completely set free from addiction, and radically changed by the power of God!
…About one year later while Brett was worshipping the Lord he was baptized in the Holy Spirit and received a calling from God to become a minister of the gospel. He immediately became a bold witness and began serving at a local Calvary Chapel nearby. For 10 years he was trained, discipled, disciplined, and served as a deacon and youth minister until in 2010 the Lord spoke to him again and told him to leave everything, his father, family, and country and go to the Amazon of Brazil to serve as a missionary. Then after 2 years of preparation in 2012 Brett surrendered his life to serve the King of kings and moved to Brazil. It was there in total surrender and in the Amazon Jungles of Brazil that the Lord then revealed His true purpose, plan, and earthly mission to Brett. It was not serve a single unreached people group in the Amazon, but to become a minister to the nations! Once he received his NEW mission he partnered with YWAM to further his ministry training & get connected to the nations. It was there, after surrendering his life to God’s call on his life, that he met his lovely wife, best friend, and partner in the gospel. After finishing his training school Brett returned to the Amazon Jungles for one year, has ministered in 7 unreached communities, has helped plant churches, been to every continent on earth(minus Antarctica), and has preach the gospel to many in almost 30 nations across the globe. Today Brett is a faithful father, loving husband, a man of prayer, a powerful preacher, and more passionate about His Savior Jesus than ever before!
