The Smiths, Assemblies of God missionaries since 1991, served at the West Africa Advanced School of Theology (WAAST) from 1994 to 2023. The Smiths enjoy traveling to the WAAST extension centers throughout West and Central Africa to teach three-week block courses and to minister in the local churches.

He works with the WAAST International Chapel, a church of 1500 members which broadcasts via Radio Jesus Loves You on the WAAST campus. He holds degrees from Central Bible College (B.A. Bible) and the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary (M.A. Missiology). He served as youth and children's pastor at Highview Assembly of God in Lampe, Missouri, and Oak Grove Assembly of God in Springfield, Missouri. Then he pastored Alfordsville Assembly of God in Indiana before becoming a missionary.


Brenda produces a weekly prayer bulletin, encouraging prayer for the Muslim world, particularly those in West and Central Africa. She served as communications coordinator for WAAST and produced the school's newsletters and a weekly prayer bulletin. She has her B.A. in English and Bible from Goshen College.
