Brooks and his wife Nina are graduates of Christian Heritage College. Brooks worked as the CFO of a Dutch multinational before he and wife were challenged through God’s word to take the gospel to an unreached people group. In 2003 they moved in among the Yembi Yembi people and spend the next 13 years working among them. They were able to develop an alphabet, teach them how to read and write in their own language for the first time, translate the entire N.T. and large portions of the O.T. and teach through the Biblical narrative till a church came into existence. In 2016 elders were in place and the church was strong and they returned to the U.S. In 2017 Brooks was named as President of Radius International.
