Brian became a follower of Jesus Christ at an early age. He went on to get a BS in Communications from Liberty University. He also has a MA in Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Seminary. He has served in vocational ministry since 2002.
Jerilyn accepted Christ as a teenager and has had a heart for missions ever since. She has a BA in Biblical Studies from Southeastern College in Wake Forest. They have served side by side in ministry their entire relationship. Jerilyn homeschools their three kids (Cadance, Noah and Aletheia.)
In 2008 Brian began leading trips to Uganda through East Africa Outreach. He led four trips over and Jerilyn accompanied him on three of those trips. In the summer of 2014 they ventured to go for three months and bring the children. The Lord used this adventure to show them that this is where they were meant to be.
They are currently building their support team to return to Uganda in 2015.
