Josh and Diana Britnell
Diana grew up in a strong Christian home and accepted Jesus as her Savior at a young age. Following the example of her parents, served with various roles in children’s ministry, youth ministry, as a Worship Leader for 2 years and Secretary for 2 years. Diana always wanted to be a wife & mom and felt called to serve God with her whole life. This dream became a reality after marrying Josh! Her heart’s desire is to first see that her children genuinely know the love of God and hopefully love Him in return, second to support and encourage Josh, and finally to serve wherever she can in the ministry.
Josh also grew up in a wonderful Christian family. His parents lived by faith as his dad preached and ministered in prisons. After high school, Josh lived in London, the Philippines and South Africa for about a year. While there he fell in love with foreign missions. After returning home, he knew he wanted to serve God full-time. Josh served as the outreach pastor & young adults pastor at Liberty Church for 3 years and since then has learned the trade of a home builder under Magnolia Builders for the past 7 years. While volunteering at Globe International the last 2 years, Josh helped coordinate the Perspectives Course. His desire is to help raise up the next generation of Missionaries who will continue the work of proclaiming the gospel in the uttermost parts of the earth.
Josh & Diana met after college and, after a whirlwind romance, married in their hometown of Pensacola, FL in 2004. They have three beautiful children, Clara, Joel & Micah. In 2007, shortly before their first child was born, Josh & Diana completed the Institute for Global Ministry. In God’s perfect timing and 3 kids later, they have the opportunity to serve in Nicaragua. They are excited about joining with this amazing team of missionaries.
