David Brown is a seminary teacher, an entrepreneur, and a humanitarian trip leader! He was among the first to go to Ukraine to help refugees after the war broke out and frequently travels to Guatemala to provide needed medical services.

Peter Knecht is from Indiana, but never made it back after marrying a Utah girl following his mission while attending BYU. He loves anything outdoors (hiking, biking, climbing, camping, exercising, gardening), so Utah has become the perfect place to raise a family of four boys and bookend princess. New business development is his professional passion, but new business development for a cause is what attracted him to American Heritage School in 2011. Since then, he’s been directing the school’s worldwide outreach to make the AHS experience more accessible and sustainable for families around the world. Nothing makes him happier than seeing students succeed on their journey to find and fulfill their divine mission—a unique outcome that he is blessed to witness daily in his role.
