As a little girl, Brenda experienced a call from the Lord to be a part of spreading the good news of the gospel of Jesus throughout the earth. After spending most of her growing up years in Indonesia as a missionary kid, she pursued a degree in Christian counseling at Hardin Simmons University in Abilene TX. After graduating and spending a year teaching English in China, she completed a 4 year degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.
During those seminary years (1993 – 1997), she met Holy Spirit in a more personal way through the ministry of James Ave Baptist Church and fell in love with Jesus all over again. At the same time, she fell in love with and married her husband, Mark Snider. They have been serving in churches in Fort Worth since that time, he as an anointed worship leader who loves to encounter the manifest presence of the Lord, and she in children’s ministry, discipleship, administration, and inner healing ministry. They were blessed with 3 beautiful children in 2000, 2002 and 2004.
When Brenda met Becky Castle in 2005, she was completely drawn into the message of the Exchange because it was the Gospel she had always loved, but it was so fresh and alive! Her life personally became healed and transformed as she encountered the Lord and let Him into her own wounded places. Over the next few years, she became trained as an exchange facilitator and stepped into facilitating ministry sessions with people. She loves watching the Lord show up and lead every time she meets with someone who is willing to encounter Him.
