Michael Brent works for the Croatian ministry Udruga Fokus (known as Agape in Europe and Cru in the United States). His primary role involves partnering with Agape Europe colleagues in other countries to provide Biblical and Theological development for staff and volunteers in Europe. Michael’s initial eighteen years of ministry to college students grounds his teaching in real life experience. Michael and his wife Brenda joined staff with Cru in 1992 and haveĀ  served with Cru in Croatia since 1997. They currently live in Zagreb. Michael earned his bachelor’s degree in Philosophy of Science from North Carolina State University and a Master of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

The podcast lessons on Romans, the Pentateuch, the Gospel of John, and the Acts of the Apostles mirror the teaching that Michael provides for the biblical and theological development of Agape Europe/Cru staff. Michael strives to teach in a way that encourages believers to love God with their mind and with their heart and with their strength.
