Awake to righteousness, and sin not;
for some have not the knowledge of God:
I speak this to your shame.

History:

Brent was born in Ypsilanti, Michigan and was saved in 1974. Janice was born in San Antonio, Texas and was saved in 1976. Brent went to San Antonio via the Air Force in 1975 where he met Janice and married in 1978. They have four children, Leslie & Michael Constanzo (Nathan, Jaxon), Jason & Sheree Riggs, (Jason, Jr., Jaedyn), Corey & Magda Riggs (Kaja, Samuel) and Cassidy & Paweł Drąg.

Brent was a pastor at the Church at Oak Knoll, San Antonio, Texas for five years. In 1985 Brent and Janice left to preach the gospel in old Mexico. They attended language school in Guadalajara, Jalisco for one year before joining other preachers in Leon, Guanajuato in 1986.

Their preaching team was able by the grace of God to establish a number of Independent Bible Believing New Testament churches in Central Mexico over a 10 year period. They helped establish churches in Leon, Gto.: Aguascalientes, Ags.; and Irapuato, Gto.

In September of 1995 Brent and Janice moved to Warsaw, Poland to begin language training. They have since finished language training and have begun preaching the gospel in Warsaw, Poland. They have published the gospel in Polish newspapers, placed gospel posters, passed out thousands of gospel tracts, started a small correspondence course, and preach on the streets daily.

In October of 2008 Brent and Janice moved to Toruń, Poland to begin establishing yet another New Testament Church. They have a small group of believers meeting with them in Toruń at this time. They hope the Lord will bless them as He so wonderfully did in Mexico and Warsaw.
