Marcus and Renee are graduates of Texas Bible College, where they met and married. Marcus grew up in France and has felt a burden to minister in the country since Bible college. Brother and Sister Brainos received their missionary appointment to France in March 2004. They have now relocated to the Southeast region and are currently planting a church in Nice. Marcus continues to teach in the French Bible Institute near Paris. In addition to discipling new people in their church planting efforts, they look forward to opening new cities in their region.
