Vice President – Peggy Pate Bridges

Hello, I’m Peggy Bridges. It has been exciting, and so very rewarding to be a member of the Relationships for Christ Ministries team. The joy of seeing what can be accomplished through the relationships we have established, first with the Lord, and then with others, is indescribable. I am proud to be a part of a constant, on-going effort to reach those who are hurting and lost.

I live alone and have two wonderful sons, and a precious grandson. I have been a real estate broker for 30 years, and for most of that time, I was not attending a church. In 1999 that all changed, and by 2005 I was feeling a call to ministry in Africa. In the ensuing years, the Lord completely prepared me and my family for the next step, full time ministry. Next month I am retiring from real estate and joining the Project Samuel team in Zambia, Africa.

Project Samuel has been a big part of my life and dreams for over 6 years now. So, the privilege the Lord has given me to live out the dreams and visions he has put in my heart fills me with gratitude. I have had a full, rich life, but the prospect of serving the Lord full time is the most exciting thing that has ever happened in my life. I see the wonderful progress going on at Project Samuel, and I can hardly wait to be part of it. I know the next years will be the best part of my life.

Besides my work with Relationships For Christ Ministries, I have been active in my local church. For the past four years I have been a member of Faith Family Fellowship in South Montgomery County.

Vice President – Brenden Vowell

Hey everyone, I’m Brenden Vowell. It is so great to be called by God to love His people and I can’t tell you enough how RFC Ministries does just that. Every day I can see how RFC is changing lives around the world through “Missions Possible” and “Project Samuel”. I am currently working in Zambia as the Missions Coordinator for Relationships for Christ Ministries, Inc. at Project Samuel. I feel so privileged to be a part of a great team that is doing something in the world.

I haven’t always been in ministry though and most of my experience comes from three years as a tax office teller and five years working with a large church in the Houston area. As I look back on many of those experiences, I can’t help but see how God was shaping my life into what it is today. He has qualified me for the calling that he has placed on my life and I know that it is Him who has led me to the mission’s field today. I grew up in church and was called to ministry well before that but didn’t realize it until I spent several weeks on a missions trip to Zambia.

I’m also very grateful that He has given me a mother and father who have followed Gods every command and have shown his love not only to myself and my sister Katie, but also to all of those they come into contact with everyday of the week. Some of my favorite things to do are traveling and ministering on the missions field. I also love photography, muscle cars, and movies.
