Our ministry began in 1957 in our home town of Buena Vista, Colorado. In the winter of 1959 we took the pastorate of a small Assemblies of God church in Castle Rock, Colorado where we spent the next eight years. Sensing the direction of the Holy Spirit, we took our five children and moved to Burlington, Colorado where we pioneered a new work. This became our home for the next twenty five years.
For many years we had missions in our heart, and in 1992 the Lord began stirring us about becoming personally involved in overseas ministry. In January of 1993 we resigned our pastorate of 25 years and launched out in faith. Our first open door was an opportunity to go to India and Nepal. We spent almost 3 months in that part of the world and after returning home, doors began to open in several parts of the world for us to minister.
We have been privileged to give training in Minister’s Training Schools in Europe, Asia, South America and Africa. At this date, we have ministered in 32 countries, and to many of these countries we have returned multiple times. We have also been involved in Minister’s Conferences in Nepal and Burma. We have been privileged to help in the purchasing of land and the building of many churches in Nepal. We have also been involved in the translating and printing of literature in that country. It is very apparent that the key to the evangelism and discipleship of the people is trained native workers. In addition to the training of the leaders, we also help in the support and purchase of equipment for the native missionaries.
We now have our home and office in the house we finished building in 2006 in Buena Vista, Colorado, using that as our base of travel. We also are grateful that all five of our children: Ladelle, Trina, Patsy, Stephen, and Scott, are actively serving the Lord.
Sue and I would like to share with you as friends and family, some exciting events taking place in our lives. We have always been drawn in our hearts to the mission field. I remember being impacted by my first missions trip to Africa as a seventeen year old. I can reflect back over the major changes and transitions in my life to missions and a passion for people of other nations coming to know Jesus.
As you may know Sue and I have been pastors of Lake Country Family Church, in Wisconsin over the past 12 years. We love our church and love being pastors of this local church. We have continued being a part of missions through our partnering with various missionaries and projects as well as taking trips.
I believe this heart for missions is in part due to the heart that my Mom and Dad have had for missions and the local church. I am thankful for my parents. They have impacted our lives by their example of integrity, sincerity and faithfulness over the years. I have always seen them live the life they have proclaimed from the pulpit.
My parents have asked Sue and I to prayerfully consider joining with them in Behrman Ministries, a ministry that reaches out to various missions throughout the world. Ministries and missions such as the Nepal medical mission trips and the “Hope for Children” orphanage in Katmandu. Their ministry also includes Bible schools and training in ministry through conferences and special meetings.
This work has been a passion of my parents and has become a passion for Sue and I as well. We are grateful and so thankful for everything Dad and Mom have deposited in our lives and have generously provided throughout the years. What a privilege to have the opportunity to give back and help them in this special time of their lives.
Sue and I will remain pastors of our church, however to embrace this ministry and fulfill our role in Behrman Ministries, we would like to invite those who would be so led to partner with us. Partnering with us would enable us to help Dad and Mom with trips and various ministry needs both state-side and abroad. We desire to come along side them and be a help to them in any way possible.
Yours in Christ,
Scott and Sue Behrman
