Hi I'm Wayne Bere

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an avid sports fan, father of two adult children, grandfather to a wonderful two year old, and have been married 27 years.

Why I am a Mormon

My family introduced me to their faith. I came from a not religious background. We celebrated Easter and Christmas, but they were not religion based celebrations.

How I live my faith

I am the missionary leader in my congregation. I assist the missionaries assigned to our area with finding people who are interested in learning more about our faith.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Wayne Bere
As a father who had a 21 year old daughter and a 23 year old son serve a full-time missions for our church I can say for absolute certainty that the missionary and their family pay for their missions. In instances where a missionary and their family are not financially able to do this there are special funds donated by other church members to assist by donating specifically to the mission fund of the church. It takes great faith to not only take the time out of part of the most active time of their lives to serve, but to also fund the mission is an act of faith. Both of my children became better people from their experiences. Their experiences blessed them and my wife and I as well. Show more Show less
