A Match Made in Montana

Pastor Steve Venable had the privilege of officiating at past IGNITE interns Brandon and Ashley’s wedding on Sunday, July 26th. Brandon and Ashley were part of IGNITE Class 3 from July 2012 during which time the Lord began a work in their lives that culminated this past weekend in marriage. It’s been a long time coming, as during the program Ashley and Brandon spent 6 months apart as Ashley served in Uganda and Brandon spent his 6 months in Kenya.

They truly gave their relationship to the Lord and allowed Him to work it together in His perfect timing. It was a incredible ceremony made even more special by many of their past classmates attending – Scott and Charvel Condon, Scott Norwood, Jacob Hawk , Danielle McDonald, Micah Murphy (who was a one of Brandon’s Groomsman), and Tandrian Riddering – as well as our Ministry Overseers in Kenya, Geoff and Linda Simpson, with their two kids, Christian and Faith.

It was truly a wonderful celebration of what God has and is doing in the lives of Brandon and Ashley, and also a special time of reunion for Pastor Steve with all those who continue to live out what they learned from the Lord through IGNITE! We are so honored to have had them in our program and we are so excited for the life and ministry the Lord has set ahead of them. Pray for Mr. and Mrs. Brandon Shackelford as they begin this new stage in their lives – that of husband and wife – with hearts that desire to glorify God!
