NATE AND ERIN BRADY

Shortly after arriving to Guatemala the Brady’s began to see the need for pastors and leaders to receive formal theological training. Because of this need they were tasked with beginning the pastoral training initiative of Chosen People. Even with numerous seminaries in Guatemala there are large numbers of pastors and leaders who cannot attend seminary. Their goal is to reach this group of pastors by taking theological education to them.

The foundational belief of their ministry is that God’s primary method of being glorified is by making Himself known and being the joy of His people. The Church is the primary vehicle by which this is accomplished. They desire to see that church in Guatemala rise up for this purpose. You can read more about the Brady’s ministry here.
