Arun & Marie-Anne Pereira
Arun is the founder and president of Gospel Haiti, Inc. He has a Masters degree in Education Administration. Arun became a Christian during a visit to Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale in August 2001. God used Jose, a Haitian friend to lead him to Christ. With Jose and other friends, Arun started visiting Haiti since 2002 and later participated in several short-term mission trips to Haiti. In 2006, he spent a year there, working in the Pine Forest area. After coming back to the USA, he continued to help the Haitian community through various programs. In August of 2008, Arun and Jose decided to create Gospel Haiti. Arun was ordained as a pastor in June 2016 from Redeeming Grace Church.
Marie-Anne was born and raised in Switzerland. She has a Masters degree in Political Science. In 2005, Marie-Anne went to Haiti to help in a Christian school in the North of the country. During that time she met Arun. They later decided to get married!

Jose Brevil, Vice-President & Treasurer
Jose is a native of Haiti. He was a principal at a Chicago public school and has a doctorate degree in Education Administration.
He is thankful to God for his parents who showed him early on that his purpose in life was to glorify God. He grew up in Haiti and south Florida where he met his wonderful wife while in college.
He lived in Fort Lauderdale, FL for ten years and attended Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale where he also attended Bible school and met a friend, a fellow classmate (Edy), who encouraged him to get involved in missionary work in Haiti. It has been quite a blessing to partner with his missionary friends in Haiti through short-term trips, fellowship, prayer and much more. Every mission trip has been a learning experience and an opportunity for spiritual growth.
Jose, his wife (Nohemie), his son (Junior) and his daughter (Emmie) live in Mississippi. His ultimate goal in life is to glorify God in everything. Some of his favorite Bible verses are:
Romans 8:28 (NASB)
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
Philippians 1:6 (NASB)
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
