Today, our bio (the story about our missionary journeys) is being updated at http://sgwm.com/blog/missionaries/brenten-powers/ but since some of you are coming straight to this blog (sgwm.com/powers) I’ll include it here too. (:
After serving as missionaries in Europe for 11 years, Brenten and Lena Powers (and their children Caleb, Lily and Samuel) are living and serving in Northern California where Brenten is leading “LET’S GO!” Missions.
Brenten and Lena started their missionary journey together as they prayed for God to send out laborers into the harvest, and God called them to go. in Spring 1999, they went to Austria to study at Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe (CCBCE) and served with an outreach team to Romania. Brenten spent that summer evangelizing in Germany and in the fall graduated from CCBC in Murrieta, CA. In 2000, after Lena graduated from UC Davis they got married at Calvary Monterey where they served in various ministries and led home fellowships in Carmel and Marina. They served as church planting missionaries in Ukraine from 2002-2004 and from 2007 to 2012 in Latvia. They were invited to serve at CCBCE in Hungary for 2013-2014 where Brenten taught Evangelism & Discipleship and led students on short outreaches to Austria, Romania, Israel, Ukraine and Latvia.
After seeing God use them in Europe to raise up more laborers, they moved back to Northern California and saw the need to help local Calvary Chapels to win, equip and send believers with the gospel. So in 2015, they joined Lighthouse Fellowship (a Calvary Chapel plant in Pacific Grove, CA) and started “LET’S GO!” in 2016 (originally an acronym for “Lighthouse Evangelism Training & Saturday Gospel Outreach”. Now as the vision for missions expands locally and globally, “LET’S GO” is being established as “Local Evangelism Training & Strategic Global Outreach”.
Brenten is seeking to partner with local churches and missionaries to encourage and equip believers to reach the nations (including the USA) with the gospel for the glory of God through Local Evangelism Training and Strategic Global Outreaches. So we look forward to seeing how God continues to use the Powers and answer our prayers to send out laborers into the harvest and reach the nations with the gospel.

Another way to give is by check payable to Saving Grace World Missions, 17451Bastanchury Rd., Suite 203, Yorba Linda, CA 92886-1873. Just write “LET’S GO / Powers” on the memo line to help cover our payroll and ministry expenses.
Thank you and may God be glorified!
