Brennen and Peyton Lesollen
Brennen grew up in Salt Lake City, UT and has lived here most of his life. He received the Holy Ghost when he was 12 and felt a calling to leadership when he was 13. He was in and out of church growing up, until that led to a world of addiction. He’s now 23 and answering the call of God. His burden now is to help young people realize that they too are strong and they too can overcome the wicked one.
Peyton was born in Rolla, Missouri, but spent most of her life in Southern Indiana. She was 12 when she started going to church, and received the Holy Ghost at the age of 13. Growing up, she was always involved in church, whether it be the music ministry, singing, or teaching. A year after graduation she decided to attend Indiana Bible College, and a year after that she moved to Utah to help Acts church. Brennen and Peyton were married on December 16, 2017.
“I feel saddened to know that there are A LOT of people out there who don’t know Jesus and don’t know His love. If there is something I can do, something I can sing, or say, with the help of God, I would love to reach the lost. To let them know that there is someone greater than their situation. Because I too was once very depressed and lost, and felt alone a lot of the time. But I learned that there is Someone fighting for us. I would love to help people know that the very same Person who fights for us sticks closer than a brother, and will love us unconditionally!”
