Early in these formational years God called Bruce into the US Army as a
Medevac Pilot for a season before turning his heart to full time ministry. Along the way he met and married Helen Rerras. Bruce has served within Manna Church in many capacities for the last 11 years. He and his wife Helen now have three beautiful daughters. Currently in 2019, Bruce is in his final year pursing a Master of Divinity at Regent University)
as he serves faithfully at Manna Church. Upon receiving his MDiv, Bruce feels called back into the military, this time as a chaplain where he looks forward to pouring his God-given talents and experience into the men and women of our armed forces.
