We are Brandon and Emily White, and we are here to love the youth at Valley Bible. Our story is a part of a much greater picture. We know God is in our midst, orchestrating the events of His Story, and though we are a small piece of the picture, we clearly see His hand in our lives and desire to be faithful in what He has called us to. Brandon’s early years were spent in North Carolina, while Emily grew up here in Westcliffe. Our stories joined paths while at college in Colorado Springs, and it was there that we began married life as an active duty family in the Air Force. Over the past ten years of marriage, we have enjoyed many adventures and along the way, God has gifted us with four children, ranging in age from one to eight years old.
Through different experiences, the Lord has grown within us a deep longing to disciple and come alongside youth in this unique season of their lives. Our prayer is that we will be “rooted and established in Love”, so that we can encourage and challenge the youth to consider “how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ”. We feel this can have a beautiful unfolding as we do life together. We desire to intentionally disciple and grow with the youth in His Truth, while having fun together and learning their hearts, their struggles, their passions. We hope to plant seeds in their lives that God grows into a love for Him and a life that follows hard after Jesus. We did not seek this role feeling fully equip or qualified, but look forward to how the Lord will use our passion and energy to serve the body of Christ through the youth ministry at Valley Bible Fellowship.
