Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m a Christian, wife, mom, and theologian. I just love a flat white in one hand and a book in the other!
I’m married to a fellow bibliophile, Tom, who I met at a theological college more than a decade ago. Tom serves as the ministry director for the Evangelical Fellowship of Congregational Churches, and he’s involved in pastoring pastors and supporting churches in the U.K.Continue reading “Sneak Peak Interview: Natalie Brand”

My family has lived in the Middle East for almost eight years, although we never set out to be cross-cultural church planters.

After seminary, friends of ours told us about an Arab sheikh who gave a plot of land on the Arabian Peninsula for the Christians in his emirate to have an evangelical church building. It was an incredible opportunity for a gospel presence in the Middle East.
So we moved hemispheres and cultures, planted a church with people from dozens of nations, built a church building, and are now raising our five children in a multicultural context in the Arab world. We still love keeping up with the American political scene, but we do so safely from 7,000 miles away.

Going to The Gospel Coalition’s Women’s Conference this June?
Join Keri Folmar, Margaret Kostenberger, Jenny Manley, Courtney Reissig and Mary Willson as they discuss why understanding doctrine is crucial for life and ministry.

This panel is for you!
First 150 attendants will receive a complimentary book from The Good Portion Series.
