JCA Staff 2019-2020


Taylor, Brandy


My name is Brandy Taylor and I am blessed to be a teacher at JCA. I teach math, English, and ESL. Teaching has been my dream since I was in the first grade and I have always wanted to serve the Lord. I get to do both here at JCA. I am happily married to Gabriel Taylor and we have a daughter named Savannah. We are blessed to be able to work for God together as a family.


Taylor, Gabriel


My name is Gabriel Taylor and I am the Bible Teacher and Chaplain here at JCA. My passion has always been ministry and ministering to God’s people. My wife, Brandy, and I have always wanted to be in ministry together, and now God has given us that opportunity here. We both have a passion for young people and leading them to Jesus. In addition to this, we are Apple product nerds. We also love nature photography. We have one daughter, 8 years old, named Savannah.


Te'ekiu, Mele


My name is Mele and it is only by the grace of God that I am here at JCA.  Without a doubt, I know that this is where God has brought me and I pray that God will use me in a mighty way.  I am happily married to Viliami Te'ekiu and we have three blessings from above:  'Akalipa, Kisione & Viliami.  My family has been in the mission field since September 2011 and it truly has been a blessing.  This year as always, it is my hope and prayer that God will continue to use my family and I to be a blessing to the children here at JCA, and to everyone that we may come in contact with.

SA Sponsor, Asst. Chef, Asst. Girls Dean, Health & Music Director

My family and I are on our 4th semester here in JCA.  Intentionally, I want to face each new day with an open heart/mind to whatever God has in plan for me.  Serving alongside wonderful staff as I tend to these precious children always refers me back to God's unfailing love and faithful guidance.  Besides my husband Viliami (Pila) and children (Siosiua, Siunipa), I'm strengthened & blessed to serve arm in arm together with my brother/wife, sister in law/family. In closing, I want to sing together with Paul and Silas with everything that God has empowered me to offer here in JCA.  Would I be able to draw these souls & people around me to ask "What must I do to be saved?".   May God abundantly bless JCA by using my family and me.What's this item about?

SA Sponsor, Asst. Boys Dean, PE & Recruiting

I have spent many years in working for the government with troubled youth in different shapes and forms.  All these years, God has faithfully followed me with a plan that I can use my experience in His field.  Six years now we have become missionaries and have served in schools/lifestyle center.  JCA has been a blessing to me and my family since the day I began.  I'm looking forward with great trust in God's hands, that He will continue to lead, teach and guide me and that I may be of some light to our students & friends.
