Dave & Cheryl (Allen) Bryan have been the Ministry Team Leaders of The Church of Glad Tidings in Yuba City, California since 1987, and the Ministry Team Leaders of The Embassy of Heaven (Yuba City) since its inception in 2009.

The Church of Glad Tidings is an inter-denominational local church that has become a model to many in promoting foreign missionary endeavors worldwide, and in meeting urgent needs in their community.

For decades, they and their team have inspired many by pioneering innovative strategies and out of the (religious) box ministries, such as “Babies Out of Bondage,” “Graffiti Busters,” and the “Trauma Intervention Program”. Their willingness to share their 40-acre campus in Yuba City freely with other area Christian leaders at The Embassy of Heaven has also become a “model of good works” to many and stands as a startling contrast to the ugly division and competition that is such a blight on the reputation of churches in the 21st century.

Dave & Cheryl are known for taking in the poor and needy into their home, including gang members, and the homeless, and loving them back to life. Intimacy with God and being friends with God is primary in their lives.

In addition to traveling extensively in general apostolic work in the US and abroad, Dave has been a regular adjunct instructor at The University of the Nations in Kona, Hawaii, as well as at YWAM bases through-out America and South-east Asia. Cheryl, likewise, is a favorite speaker at home in Yuba City, and in conferences and seminars abroad. Many recognize her as following in the footsteps of her grandfather – A. A. Allen – in carrying the fire of the Holy Spirit as a revivalist in the Body of Christ!

A dramatic conflict with the highest-level leaders in The Church of Satan in 1997 thrust Dave and Cheryl into the forefront as well-respected trainers in both harassment/oppression level and occult level deliverance. Their Isaiah 61 Deliverance Conference has impacted thousands and has opened doors for them to travel worldwide teaching on the subjects of spiritual warfare, deliverance, and the healing and full restoration of the human body and soul.

Ministry Motto:
Find a Need and Meet It,
Find a Hurt and Heal It!

The Serpent and the Savior is Dave and Cheryl Bryan’s dramatic and controversial eye-witness account of one woman’s rescue from the macabre maze of Satanic Ritual Abuse and the Crowleyan “Rituals of Defilement” into “the glorious liberty of the children of God!” (Romans 8:21).
