Tim and Niai Byrd both became believers while at university. Tim went on to serve with Campus Outreach in Johannesburg in 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, minored in AAAS Lit from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Due to both their fathers being in the military, Tim and Niai grew up in both Europe and the States. They have two daughters (Thandi, Ledi), one son (Melo), and a baby girl due soon! The Byrds enjoy reading, writing, playing and watching sports, working out, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, repeatedly watching "Pride and Prejudice" (that's really Niai:), cooking and casual time with family and friends. Their vision is that through the lives of passionate university students, within the local church, Zambia would become a gospel-saturated launching pad for expanding Campus Outreach Regions and missionaries into the nations of Africa and beyond for the glory of God.
