Executive Director

Read Pastor David’s Biography

Pastor David Breidenbach joined the staff as Executive Director in March 2015. He is a dual-rostered clergy member of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) and the North American Lutheran Church (NALC).

David spent 14-years at his previous call, where he served as Associate Pastor and Director of Overseas Missions at Faith Lutheran Church (LCMC) in Albuquerque, NM. Faith Lutheran also sent out Pr. David and his wife, Angela, in early 2010, to start a second, satellite campus serving the people on Albuquerque’s Westside and city of Rio Rancho, where Pr. Breidenbach served as Lead Pastor until accepting his call with SON Network.

Pr. David and his wife Angela and daughters, Rachel & Emily began serving with SON (then EEMN) in 2006, leading teams to Ukraine, Slovakia and Russia. As their love for the ministry grew, so did the connection to the people they were serving. When Pastor David had the opportunity to join the staff as Executive Director, it was an easy decision.

A second career pastor; David began his internship in 2004 at Faith Lutheran in Albuquerque and was commissioned as a contract-call pastor under LCMC guidelines, on Easter 2006. After completing his seminary education, David was ordained in November 2007.  In his first career, David worked for 14-years in the broadcast television production industry and also owned and managed a commercial voice-over studio.

Pr. David attended the University of Albuquerque and UNM. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in biblical and theological studies and his Master of Divinity degree in biblical and theological studies from Trinity Southwest University at Albuquerque, NM.

Pr. David and his wife, Angela, married in 1991. They have two adult daughters, two sons-in-law, and two grandchildren.

In his spare time, David enjoys focusing time on his family, personal fitness, music, reading, travel, photography, home improvement, the great outdoors, four-wheeling, and vintage automobiles.

Angela Breidenbach

Director of Operations and Youth Education
Albuquerque, NM

Read Angela’s Biography

Along with her husband, Pastor David Breidenbach, Angela took her first trip with SON (then EEMN) to Ukraine in 2007 where she discovered her gift of working with children and youth. Beginning in 2008, Pastor David and Angela took their daughters (then 9 and 13) to Slovakia. This began their family’s love of working in East and Central Europe, the Baltics and the Balkans.

In November of 2016, Angela joined the SON staff, leaving a 30-year career in Finance Operations. Because of her background, she had been able to implement a database that helps us to correctly track support trends and recognize our donors. Additionally, she has streamlined and documented financial processes, created standardized business policies, and has professionalized business operations to ensure the health of SON Network into the future.

Angela’s real love is continuing to work with the students who attend the English Bible Camps and Life and Adventure Camps each summer. She enjoys writing the curriculum for the Life and Adventure Camps and works on the committees that create the English Bible Camp curriculum and resources. She is also responsible for all aspects of coordinating the summer teams.

In her spare time, Angela loves to read (daily Bible devotions and historical fiction are her favorites); cook special meals for family and friends; and spend time with two grown daughters, Rachel & Emily; their husband’s, Brian and Conrad; and grandsons, Augustine & Elias.
