Bradley & Hannah Smith

Two California natives, Brad and Hannah entered into full-time ministry when they followed a God-placed stirring in their heart. This desire to see disciples made from the unchurched led them first to Aix en Provence in the south of France for Brad to work as a worship director and faith community developer. After three years, they felt it was time to hand off the worship ministry and devote all their efforts to raising up and mobilizing disciple-makers. They moved to Utrecht, The Netherlands, and joined the new Communitas Benelux Advancement Team where they focused on evangelism and discipleship training.

After landing in The Netherlands, the world was soon shut down due to Coronavirus. The next two years they devoted themselves to helping get the Benelux Advancement Team off the ground and developing their trainings for online distribution. After two years the Lord raised up a national to replace Brad and they handed off the ministry and sensed that it was time to return to the USA to start a new work in the city.

After 6 months the Lord lead them to Richmond, Virginia where they are working to build a multi-denominational prayer movement to fuel disciple-making in the city. Brad continues to train and coach Christians throughout the world in disciple-making.

They have two boys, Hudson and Sawyer, and love the city, good food and drink, music and art, and nature.

Personal Biography

I love people and helping them grow, especially if it means walking alongside them and helping them discover Jesus. I am passionate about multiplication and I love training and teaching others as well. In my spare time, I can most often be found outdoors, exploring a city or nature – if I’m forced inside, then you’ll most often find me in the kitchen, trying out a new recipe.
