About On Eagles' Wings

Life in Native communities sometimes comes with difficult challenges. Addiction, suicide, poverty, loneliness, and abuse hurt far too many, so our mission is simple - Hope. On Eagles' Wings is a movement of Native-American young people bringing Hope to their communities through Jesus Christ. This Hope, a relationship with Jesus Christ, is the only Hope that lasts.

The OEW team brings hope in the form of live events, stirring media, and relationships across the United States and Canada. For twenty years the OEW team has been sharing their Hope stories with other Native young people. On Eagles' Wings also works to encourage and equip local partners that are already serving Native young people in their community.

OEW also hosts an annual discipleship conference called Warrior Leadership Summit. WLS was created to encourage and equip Native young people who want to grow in their faith and make a difference for Jesus Christ.

I carried you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.

Lani Liew

Favorite verse: Psalm 51:10

Lani attended WLS for the first time back in 2008 and served with On Eagles' Wings during the 2009 Summer of Hope. She hasn't missed a summer since! She is Tonawanda Seneca/Hopi, and recently moved from upstate New York to work for On Eagles' Wings full-time. She brought equal parts sparkle and New York attitude to the office with her. You can often hear her laughter filling the office halls, and see her sporting her signature sock bun.

Brad and Sara Hutchcraft

Favorite Verse: Psalm 27:4

Brad and Sara Hutchcraft have been working with OEW since its inception over 20 years ago. They have a huge heart for frybread, the Arizona landscape, and as one Hopi young person said, "Their heartbeat is Native." They've seen most of this staff grow up through the years and truly believe in servant leadership. If you need unconditional love or a piece of advice, these are the people you want to talk to.

Tara Colucci

Favorite Verse: Romans 11:33-36

Tara was born and raised on the Navajo Reservation and believes that nothing can beat an Arizona sunset. While she loves fresh mutton wrapped in fry bread, she loves her husband, Jesse, and her daughter Daya even more. Tara has served on the OEW team since 2006 and joined our staff shortly after graduating Indian Bible College in 2011. You can often find Tara microwaving cold coffee, working on countless WLS andOEW flight arrangements, or navigating the world of motherhood.
