Dow and Brooke Saunders live with their children in Madison, WI, where they work at Youth With a Mission in several of its global initiatives and mobile training ministries, especially Biblical Education and Leadership Training (BELT) international seminars. Dow’s commitment is to training and equipping Christian missionaries, pastors, and leaders who will go on to disciple their societies through biblical training and discipleship. He does this primarily through leading teams and teaching biblical principles in international initiatives to the Congo, Tanzania, Nepal, and many other nations with limited access to biblical training.
In 2015 the Saunders started a YWAM “Bible School for the Nations” in Tanzania, and they are committed to seeing that continue successfully by traveling there each year, teaching students, and assisting their close Tanzanian friends who lead the biblical training now. Dow is also currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Christian Formation and Discipleship through the University of the Nations in order to enhance and deepen his global missions work.
Brooke is a certified nutrition consultant and has joined ministry teams to Congo, Tanzania, Nepal, India, and more. Together with Dow, they have three children: Frances (girl), Gordon and Everett (boys).
