Jason Lee Jones and his wife Regina are completely ruined for Jesus. The more they encounter the kindness of Jesus, the more they long to be his voice of passion and compassion in the earth. They are internationally recognized speakers, preachers, teachers, authors, poets, songwriters, and accomplished musicians and missionaries.
In light of their global service in a myriad of capacities, they have a vivid perspective of the church and missions at large. Such faculties include the likes of senior and associate pastors, creative arts and worship pastors, missions’ directors, and mentors. At their core, they are true philanthropic missionaries with benevolent hearts, who are working on the front lines and also alongside those worldwide organizations to physically feed, clothe, and educate the impoverished, and rescue those in conflict areas.
Wholeheartedly, they focus on influencing influencers via facilitating leadership development, bible schools, missions training, consultations, and are especially gifted with a distinct propensity in drawing out the gifts of artisans through art intensives with an emphasis on building world changers through a modern day renaissance. Together, they are integral voices stewarding and sustaining global movements.

Marcus Salles is an artist, chief musician and priest. He is a Levite, called to minister to the Lord in and through excellence in music, a prophetic sound and a life of radical obedience in the Spirit of Sonship. God has called him to release a sound of awakening throughout the nations- a sound that releases identity, belonging, faith, power, healing, encouragement, anointing and fire-- and a sound that leads the human heart to bare all in intimacy with Jesus. He and his wife have given themselves to see transformation, reformation and a regional and national turning back to the true heart of God, first in America and then in the nations. One of their greatest joys is seeing the love of God touch deeply the heart of his beloved and watching lives be restored by His passionate pursuit and the burning jealousy in His eyes.
Marcus and Sue serve as part of the Richest of Fare Global Leadership Team, based in Savannah, GA. They labor with a family of radical lovers to see their local and global community of world-changers thrive and grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is their great honor and humbling joy to be part of a pure and authentic move of God and to serve alongside a group of such incredible leaders and lovers of Jesus.
Brittany is a delightful young woman of virtue, excellence, and grace that has done her due diligence in the study of the arts. Though she’s been in Savannah for only a year she has traveled in her field and in missions since a young age from Brazil to Mozambique and more. She lacks neither degree nor honor. Her studies at The University of South Florida culminated in graduating with a bachelor of fine arts. She’s danced with The Sarasota Ballet Company, performed her own choreography in Madrid Spain and received scholarship for her work. Brittany has also studied all over Florida with the Kirov, New York City and Washington DC. She has performed lead roles in The Nutcracker, Don Q, Sleeping Beauty, as well as other contemporary and ballet works and has been guest artist in countless other roles. With all that said there is only one that she aims to ultimately please. She moves to the rhythm of heaven’s song and dance captivating all hearts that get caught up in the wave of presence that she releases in purity of heart and skill of her craft.
Fernando and Nathalia de Sousa Diaz are two lovely Latin souls. They are passionate, supremely creative, and are completely in love with Jesus. Fernando (publicist) is from Brazil and Nathalia (business administrator) is from Colombia. Though they are successful professionals, their hearts drive them towards the lost and broken. This is evident in their outreach to women in prostitution, single moms and widows. They have been serving as missionaries with Iris Global for the past 10 years. Nathalia lived in Mozambique for 5 years where she established a micro business project with the African women bringing value, dignity and identity to them. Fernando was part of Iris Brazil for about 5 years where he served as part of the evangelistic team reaching out to the women and men in prostitution in Fortaleza Brazil. They are currently living in Portugal, standing in the promise that a new wave of God is calling a new breed of missionaries to Europe.
They believe they are meant to inspire others to be who they are called to be and to bring out the creativity in people to use their talents, careers, and skills for the Kingdom of God. They have shared in different nations about missions and trained people in evangelism, which is one of their passions. They also love sharing with others about what it looks like to ‘say yes to God’ without reservations, thus going anywhere He tells you to go. Fernando and Nathalia have been serving with Godbreed for the past 2 years and feel honored to be part of this movement of radical lovers who are calling the creative ones to step out for the Kingdom of God and become authentic worshipers in spirit and truth.
