Bradley’s experience with missions began during his college years at Auburn University when he spent three summers with MTW in Odessa, Ukraine (‘99-‘01). The experience changed his life, worldview, outlook on the global Church, and his view of God’s kingdom.
Sara’s journey in missions began in 1993 with a short-term trip to Mexico. While a student at Auburn University she also went to Romania to do mercy ministry, working primarily with orphans. God’s work in Romania drew Sara back on five additional trips.
In 2007, Bradley and Sara began life as a married couple in Birmingham, AL. After a trip in 2010 to L’viv, they were convinced of God’s calling to join the L’viv church planting team. Bradley’s primary role is to serve as the team's Executive Administrator, to manage all translation projects and to develop a publishing house. In addition to caring for her family as a wife and mother, Sara seeks to develop relationships with other women and families. She also works with the various children's and women's ministries of the church.
The Cordells have 3 incredible kids: Hannah, Becca & Ben. The kids are a major part of their life and ministry, and they are also an integral part of the church planting work in L'viv.
