Meet Our Board of Directors
My name is Brad Sheets, I'm a native Phoenician with travel to the Far East, Central America, Mexico, Canada, and most of the United States. My servient experience has been with faith and non-faith, youth and adult groups. I assisted with Vietnamese refugee rescues in the 80's as a Marine, as well as youth sports and youth groups over the last 30 years. I have formally trained, and have experience leading, many youth programs. My recent focus has been with hurricane relief efforts in Texas and Florida on Emergency Response Teams, as well as participating in Covid relief by providing food, water, hay, and cleaning items on the Hopi and Navajo Reservations with One Hundred Angels. I enjoy learning languages and cultures in the places that I visit.
