Pastor Brad Boydston is organizing MasterPiece Church. He and his wife Cheryl moved to Phoenix in 2009 after serving as missionaries in the Western Pacific, where they were helping with the development of church leaders at Pacific Islands University. He still teaches online classes for PIU each semester and returns to Guam regularly for classes and special projects. He has been directly involved in the development of hundreds of Christian ministers throughout the Pacific, Asian Rim, and in the US.
This is the third time that Brad has pastored a "church plant." He has written about the birthing of new churches and coached other church planters. Videos and transcriptions of some of his sermons can be found at FreshFishFood.org. Brad and Cheryl have three adult children.
Dr Boydston is a graduate of Arizona State University (BA communication) and Fuller Theological Seminary (MDiv, DMin). He is an ordained minister in the Evangelical Covenant Church. His online profile can be found at boydston.org.

May Mei grew up in Mainland China. Brad and Cheryl met her when she was living on Guam and was one of his students at Pacific Islands University. In the fall of 2010 May did an internship at MasterPiece as a part of the BA in biblical studies program at PIU. She graduated as valedictorian in May 2011, and has returned to us to serve as a volunteer coordinating our outreach to Chinese immigrants. She is also our financial administrator. In addition to her degree in Bible May has an accounting degree from Guam Community College.
May and her husband Danny live in Laveen.

Karyn Sorenson, like Brad and Cheryl, served as a Covenant Missionary
at Pacific Islands University on Guam. Her husband, Eric, recently relocated to Santa Barbara, California because he took a position as a pastor at Community Covenant Church in Goletta. She still serves Micronesians and PIU -- but now through the Bridges of Hope organization.
Karyn is a licensed marriage and family therapist. She teaches distance education classes from Santa Barbara and counsels PIU students and staff via Skype. She also travels regularly to Micronesia. Follow the Sorensons through their blog, Musings from Micronesia. We support her financially because Karyn's work helps extend the ministry of our congregation even deeper into the Micronesian communities.
