Aaron & Ana Stafford
Aaron & Ana served with YWAM Cluj-Napoca, Romania for nearly 16 years before coming to BSSM in 2015. Driven by their love for Jesus and a passion to see the Kingdom of God powerfully manifested in and around them, they spent four years soaking up all they could from the Bethel community with a desire to take back what they learned to see revival in Romania and the nations. As the founders and directors of Living Well, a family ministry with a vision to see men, women and children passionately pursuing their full potential in Christ, they believe the family is the backbone of every society. Their calling is to raise up husbands and wives committed to loving and raising powerful children, to see orphans becoming sons and daughters, and build strong, healthy families that equip and empower society to live in wholeness.
African Bible Schools
The African Bible Schools were adopted by Bethel Church in 2007. Reaching city influencers and the poorest village pastors, the 11 schools are located in Kenya, Rwanda, Zambia and the DR Congo. They are run by principals who passionately live out their Kingdom DNA—training people to heal the sick, have intimacy with Papa, and know the Word! The next phase of development is to build in practical skills and business training to help graduates not only walk in power, but to bring justice to their nations by turning poverty into prosperity!
Originally from Australia, Ben Fitzgerald was on staff at Bethel in Redding for several years when in 2014, Jesus showed him a vision at a field to take back Europe. After many confirmations, Bethel sent Ben to Germany where he and his team now live and host city wide events across the continent called Awakening Europe. These events, funded primarily by giving, serve three primary functions: to equip believers to share Jesus with no fear, to unify the church for God's plan for their nation, and to win many new people to God through mass outreaches.

Erica Greve is the founder of Unlikely Heroes, a non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, restoration and rehabilitation of children previously trapped in sex slavery in the US and abroad. Unlikely Heroes implements and operates restoration homes, rescue and prevention programs for child victims of sex slavery worldwide. Additionally, Unlikely Heroes is working in partnership with other non-profit organizations in the United States, Philippines and Mexico to see child victims who have been sold for sex rescued, protected and rehabilitated.
Heroes of the Nation
Heroes of the Nation is the largest orphanage in Kenya, bringing hope and love to over 500 children. They started 11 years ago with a desire to not just feed and clothe orphans, but to train them to be the next leaders of their country. All of their kids are given a great education, empowered to lead, and taught about their identity in Christ. They have coupled their mission with a self-sustaining model: creating local businesses to generate revenue and provide jobs for the community. They believe the children on their campus are truly going to change their nation!
M72 have a vision for millions of people of South Asia being saved, discipled, and baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are not only passionate about bringing the gospel to over 2000 unreached people groups of South Asia but also want to bring about transformation to the entire nation they live in and see their land become a revival resource to all of Asia and the Middle East. They are also focused on discipling nationals, empowering the church and creating healthy families.
Having been successful professional athletes themselves as well as an Olympic finalist, J+J now travel around the world together with their daughters to reach athletes and coaches with the good news and empower them to be inspiring role models to our youth and society. Over the past 16 years J+J received official accreditation for over 40 big sports events such as the Olympic Games, World Championships and World Cups where they offered a safe and performance-free place for athletes and coaches to be encouraged, receive prayer and experience a relationship with God. God’s manifest presence and unconditional love would show up in tangible ways and many athletes would experience freedom from their performance-based identity as they discovered their true identity as sons and daughters. As a family they have a passion to see athletes and professionals live a healthy, value-based and abundant life beyond their performance.
Along the way God has been opening up many doors and hearts of global influencers. J+J have had the privilege of meeting many people from the industries of politics, media as well as arts & entertainment. J+J’s heart-cry is for global influencers to experience a personal relationship with God and in turn make Him famous and known in their own spheres of influence. www.beyond-gold.org

After a mission’s trip 15 years ago, Rose knew she was called to Spain. As she stood on her balcony and looked out over the city of Valladolid, she heard the Lord say, “This is your city”. It was clear to her that one day she would return… that was 8 years ago, as of July 2013. She is more in love with this country than ever before. She has developed incredible relationships not only with the people in her church but within her community as well. Her church is involved with the military, police association and churches of different denominations – all-working together to see changes in the mindset of Spaniards. She feels privileged to be a part of the changes that are helping to transform Spain into a nation that is proud in its belief and walk with the Lord.
