Before moving to Los Angeles to coach church planters, Will Browning was a church planting pastor himself, and he grew the church that started in his home to serve nearly 1,000 weekly worshipers, plant 9 autonomous churches, and become a church planting coaching center. Will has both his Master of Divinity in Church Planting and his Doctorate of Ministry in Great Commission Studies. He and Tarah have been married for 25 years and have three children, two of whom were adopted from the Ukraine: a daughter who is a nurse, a son in the Marine Corps (who is married to a fellow Marine and just gave Will & Tarah their first grandbaby, Gabriel), and a son who is a rising college freshman at California Baptist University. Will enjoys reading, sports, and documentaries. He currently serves as the Director of Send California for the North American Mission Board.​


Tarah Toy Browning met Christ and her husband in college and has never looked back. Tarah has been a music teacher, events director, and has a passion for coming alongside women, especially church planter pastors’ wives, because she understands the unique struggles of balancing a healthy marriage and budding ministry. Through Serve Ministries, Tarah enjoys equipping and encouraging church planting wives across the state. She is a fan of coffee dates, Christmas trees, and any and all thrift stores!
