George & Ruth Brandon

George Brandon is one of the founders of the Filling Station – DFW. The Filling Station is an informal setting where people come to be refreshed by the Spirit of God, receive helpful Biblical teaching, and find healing in our Lord Jesus. The weekly meetings are led by a group of ordinary people who wish to bring glory to God by the working of the Holy Spirit. This ministry finds its spiritual covering from St. Paul’s Westport and hopes to one day see healing and deliverance prayer practiced in all mainline denominations.

Prior to the Filling Station in 2011, the Brandon’s have hosted countless home bible studies and prayer meetings. George’s ministry experience includes three years as a volunteer lay pastor to Valley of Peace Lutheran Church in Hailey, Idaho and a number of elder and ministry board positions.

George currently works for a financial services firm headquartered in Dallas, Tx. He is married to Ruth Brandon and has four children.

Paul Teske

Rev. Paul N. E. Teske has served as a “traditional” pastor and clergyman within a mainline denomination since 1976. A graduate of Baylor University and Concordia Theological Seminary, Rev. Teske’s orthodox training has also included time at the Lutheran Theological Institute in Oberursal, Germany and Eastern Baptist Seminary in Philadelphia, PA. He served churches in the Republic of Panama and Ohio before serving as an active duty Navy Chaplain for twelve years. In 1989, Rev. Teske returned to parish ministry taking a call as the Senior Pastor of St. Paul Lutheran Church (affiliated with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod) in Westport, CT.

On May 7, 2004, while speaking to two hundred businessmen, Pastor Paul suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, immediately leaving his left side paralyzed. While in the hospital, God spoke to him and told him that he would be healed in twenty-one days. Upon leaving the hospital in a wheelchair, he was told by the medical staff that even after physical therapy, he would need to wear a leg brace for the rest of his life.

Twenty-one days after the stroke, Rivers, drove Paul to Baltimore, MD to attend a large healing crusade. On that Friday night, exactly as the Lord has promised, Pastor Paul was completely healed. Without any knowledge of his prior condition or healing, the minster leading the service called Paul and Rivers to the platform to receive “a call to administer healing and deliverance” and stated that thousands of people would be healed by Jesus through their ministry.

Since his healing on May 28, 2004, Pastor Paul has traveled to teach and minister in over forty countries on six continents and ministered in venues including: healing crusades in large stadiums; teaching, demonstrating and imparting the gifts he received to others in churches, camp meetings and homes; television and radio; seminars; and teaching in Bible schools, seminaries and colleges.

His book, Healing for Today (Bridge Logos Foundation) was released in July 2010 and shares his story that Jesus still heals today.
He has been married to his lovely wife, Rivers, since 1989 and has been blessed with three grown children and a extraordinary grandson and granddaughter.
