    Guest's bio and social handles:

    Preston Todd and Holly Scurry Todd are the VP of Global Missions & Discipleship and Church Planting at Matthew 10 International. They bring the gospel into difficult-to-access nations and they help to set captives free, literally, spiritually, and physically. They're on a mission to lead the lost to Jesus and rescue multi-generational families out of decades of slavery in the Middle East.

    In addition to serving at Matthew Ten International, it's their joy to lead ascent mentors and they have a huge desire to see young men and women connect to the heart of God and experience the relational nature of Jesus Christ through the power of one on one mentorship. When Holly and Preston were both in high school, they came to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior because their young life leaders intentionally spent time with them and taught them how to know Jesus instead of just knowing about him. And since then, they've had a passion to meet kids right where they are and help them truly know him as the best gift this side of heaven.

    Preston and Holly Todd Holly are newlyweds and they would both say that they have married their dream spouse. Holly is a bonus mom to Preston's eleven-year-old twins, Ruth and Liam. The word of God is their source of strength and their life verse is Acts 20:24.
