TGN: Who, What, & Why
Brae and Jill Wyckoff have been active Christians since 1999, serving in the local church in various servant and leadership capacities. In January 2009, God led them to The Awakening | San Diego church in Carlsbad, California, where they were awakened to the Holy Spirit for the first time. And He launched them into a new direction in their Christian walk. “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing!” (Isaiah 43:18-19) This new thing led them to deeper connections and supernatural encounters with the Holy Spirit.
Since that time, Brae and Jill have experienced numerous Holy Spirit encounters. They have personally experienced miracles, and seen many signs and wonders. “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power.” (1 Cor. 4:20) These miracles, signs, and wonders all pointed to a powerful, loving God who moves today as He did in days of old. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” (Hebrews 13:8) In September 2010, in an effort to share this awesome news with a world-wide audience, they launched The Greater News on Facebook.
A little over two years later (2012), The Greater News had over 3,400 fans in 20 different countries and several million page views. Brae and Jill have received numerous emails from people across the globe that have been touched by the miracles and the “Greater News” that God is good, He cares about them, and He moves in Love and Power.
Brae and Jill have been completely transformed by the manifest presence and power of God. They have left behind the “former things”—a powerless Christianity with God in a box—for a life of heaven on earth reality. “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) Their hearts’ desire is to see lives transformed by the manifest presence of God, and share His hope with a hopeless world. To that end, they launched the official Greater News website in January 2013, and The Greater News Ministry to expand beyond the virtual/online platform and onto the streets of America and across the nations in the not too distant future. There vision is to see TGN shared through all media with intentions of having a TV and Radio station sharing the miracles of God 24/7.
If you would like the Wyckoffs to share the Greater News message with your church body or organization, and see those around you begin to step into the "greater things" that Christ promised in John 14:12, please fill out the short form on our contact page, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Founders of TGN - The Wyckoff's
Brae was born and raised in San Diego, CA. He married his beautiful wife, Jill, on December 11th, 1993. They have three children, Tommy, Michelle, and Brittany, and four grandchildren. Brae is an active leader in his church body at Citadel San Diego | Vista, CA. He attended The School of Activation; an offshoot of the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA. Brae is a published author. His first book, The Orb of Truth, was released in November 2012 and is the first in his fantasy adventure novels, The Horn King Series, which weaves Christian faith together with a magical realm of dragons and lore, in an epic tale of good versus evil. His other books of the series, The Dragon God and The Vampire King are now available. Brae is also working towards a Psychology degree, and recently co-hosted a radio/podcast with Steve Maddox (Director of John Paul Jackson's Dreams and Mysteries show) called Prophetic Underground.

Jill has been happily married to the man of her dreams since 1993. Her three children, children-in-law, and grandchildren are her bliss. She has been on a remarkable spiritual journey that was catapulted to new heights in January 2009 when she was awakened to the Holy Spirit for the first time. Since then she has attended The School of Activation through The Awakening | San Diego in Carlsbad CA (daughter church of Bethel in Redding CA) and been activated into the healing and prophetic ministry. When asked about her life’s mission, Jill responds: “I just want to Love people. I want to Love the hell out of them.” Some of the ways she does this is by connecting with strangers, listening, praying, encouraging, hugging, and in general—creating an atmosphere for God encounters. Jill has worked in administration for over 25 years. She thrives on all things creative, and coloring outside the lines. She started Art4HeartSake (www.art4heartsake.com) where she raises awareness of human slavery and helps to fight this injustice through her prophetic finger painting. She has painted around the world and has trained hundreds on how to express themselves through art.
