Brandon and Lynnea Holmes live and serve in Manila, Philippines through Faith Academy. Lynnea teaches in the kindergarten class while Brandon teaches band in grades 5-12. This mission school allows missionary parents to faithfully follow God’s calling, knowing that their children are receiving a quality, Christ-centered education. Brandon and Lynnea are especially excited about sharing their love of cross-cultural missions with their students — many of whom will go on to become missionaries themselves!
Brandon and Lynnea met at Mayer Lutheran High School in Minnesota. After high school, Lynnea attended Concordia Irvine where she received her Bachelors in International Studies and Missiology while Brandon attended Concordia Nebraska and received his Bachelors in Music Education. After four years of long-distance, Brandon and Lynnea were married in December of 2019.
Both Brandon and Lynnea have a great love of traveling, playing folk music, and being in the great outdoors. They have been blessed to be able to travel to many countries — Lynnea through an Around-the-World Semester with Concordia Irvine and Brandon through tours, mission trips, and visits to his sister in Morocco.
They both have had cross-cultural ministry on their hearts for much of their lives, and were encouraged in this path by their wonderful families. Brandon and Lynnea are honored to participate with you in God’s mission to proclaim the Gospel in the Philippines!
