Nate Craft had a dream. And he had a plan to reach his dream, a plan to live the life he had always wanted. He was a Division 1 football player at Jacksonville State University.

Zach and Carrie Brinegar never saw themselves as church planters. But over time, the Lord led them to believe that church planting is the most effective way of spreading the gospel. And for the last twelve years, they have proclaimed the message of Jesus’ love to those who have never heard the gospel, first in Northern Asia. Now, with God’s direction, they are moving to Vienna, Austria to plant a church in a city whose population of 1.8 million people is 25% atheist and only 0.5% evangelical.
