Our Team

Operations Coordinator

Briana Chapman

Born and raised in Alaska. I graduated from Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, California, where I learned all different aspects of ministry and was able to visit the country of Wales in the United Kingdom for two different mission trips, and I am already planning for the next. I have a heart for family, community and to see people fully step into all that God has for them. Working as a Medical Assistant at NAPM has made me realize that I would like to pursue a career in the medical health field. In my free time I enjoy heading up to the mountains with my best friend, my camera, and a good cup of coffee in hand to see what we can find.
