Brief Autobiographies


We are the Biegert 5 –

missionaries with Bible Centered Ministries International (BCM)!


Brian and Lisa are both graduates of New Tribes Bible Institute (now Ethnos360) in Waukesha, Wisconsin, with Associates in Biblical Studies. We felt the Lord calling us into ministry even before we were married in 2005. BCM International is a perfect fit for us since their goal is to “Reach Children and Strengthen the Church.” Our heart is to reach children with the Gospel with of Jesus Christ and to better prepare those who work with children on a regular basis.

We lived for four years (March 2009-December 2012) at BCM’s Bible School outside of Lima, Peru. Brian was the head of maintenance and Lisa home schooled, in English, 5 Peruvian missionary children.
IMG_20170830_073653415Our daughter, Elena (E), was born September 29, 2010, in Lima. Joseph (Big J), our oldest boy,  was born September 27, 2012, also in Lima. James (Little J) joined us on May 8, 2015, here in Pennsylvania. We are so grateful to have them on this journey serving the Lord.

We now serve at Missionary Retreat Fellowship, located in Jefferson Township, Pennsylvania. We are heavily involved with BCM International and in our “free time”, we work in our sending church, Grace Bible Church, in Dunmore, PA. Check out “Our Ministry Overview” to read more details.

If you would like us to come and speak at your church or small group, about BCM or MRF, let us know – we’d be more than happy to do so.

  5. Dear Bro. Brian and Sister Lissa.
    Greetings to you in the most precious name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ,
    We are blessed by visiting your website and inspired by the Holy Spirit to contact you.
    My name is Shaik John, but my name was changed as John Paul after receiving Him as my personal Saviour in the year 1995 and serving the Lord faithully among poor muslims and hindus of our region in India. In result of our incessant prayers and arduos efforts many people from Hindu and Muslim communities coming forward to accept Jesus Christ as their personal saviour.
    We are also motivating the youth of both religions and working with them in out-reach programmes.
    Here the harvest is plenty and challenging us to reap better harvest for the Glory of our Lord.
    Hence, we invite you to visit us in India to preach in our pastors, women and youth conferences and in open-air meetings.
    Please pray for us and for our people those who are groping in darkness for peace and salvation,
    Yours in Christ,
    Shaik John (John Paul)
