Team Leader

Tim and Niai Byrd both became believers while at university. Tim went on to serve with Campus Outreach (CO) in Johannesburg, South Africa for thirteen years (marrying Niai five years into ministry) before he and his family moved to Lusaka, Zambia to launch a second CO region in Africa. Tim holds degrees in both African-American and African Studies (AAAS) and English, while Niai majored in English and minored in AAAS Lit from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Due to their fathers being in the military, Tim and Niai both grew up in Europe and the States. They have four children: Thandiwe, Naledi, Timothy Tumelo, and Harper. The Byrds enjoy reading, writing, board games, creating movies, cooking, and casual time with family and friends. Their vision is for Zambia to become a gospel-saturated launching pad for expanding CO regions and missions into the nations of Africa and beyond for the glory of God. They pray this will be accomplished through the lives of passionate university students in the context of the local church.
