Grant’s time as a student with Uni Impact was key to his spiritual growth and development. Grant came on staff in 2006 and currently serves as the Tasman Network Coordinator, seeking to grow the movement and develop staff across the Tasman Network. His passion is to see people living out of their identity in Christ and using their gifts, talents, and experience to joyfully serve God in their work, church, and family.
Sam and Sara Miller
Sam came to faith in his fourth year at the University of Queensland. Sara grew up in Birmingham, Alabama and came to faith at a young age. She then moved over to Brisbane for an internship in 2016. Now, Sam and Sara both work on the team in Brisbane. Sam’s role is the Brisbane director, and Sara is a part of the campus staff team and shares the role of women’s coordinator. Their prayer is that, as more Australians come to Christ, many would have an impact on God’s Kingdom through laboring in local churches in Australia and around the world.
Wellinton trusted in Christ as a teenager. He continued to wake up in the middle of the night with a sense of urgency to pray nearly every day for 2 months. As a college student at UFMG, Wellinton was drawn to Campus Outreach because of the authentic community and friendships. He began to deepen in his relationship with Christ and believe in Campus Outreach’s vision. Wellinton came on staff in 2012 and works on campus at UFMG. Now in 2020, he will start working with Uni-impact in Brisbane/Australia.
Campus Outreach and the staff women associated with them were the vehicle that brought me to Christ my freshman year of college. Through the relentless love of this ministry, I was able to finally trust the Lord with my soul and believe that in His goodness, He could provide for me in ways this world could not. Because of this, I decided to officially go on staff internationally with Campus Outreach in Brisbane, Australia at the University of Queensland. I hope to be a loving vessel for the gospel for lost women on the college campus there.
I benefited greatly from Uni Impact during my studies. Having godly men who invested in and made themselves available to me challenged my faith deeply and is a big reason why I’ve committed to a year as a Uni Impact Intern. One of my main passions is people and, having lived in a residential college for three years, have experienced the need for godly interactions in this environment. I’m excited to see how God is at work in students at UQ.
Clay and Merrell Hubbard
Clay and Merrell met at Samford University where they both significantly grew in their relationships with Christ. Clay served with Campus Outreach in Australia from 2015-2016. Upon return, Clay took a job with Campus Outreach at Samford in early 2017, and Clay and Merrell were married later that year. They are passionate about seeing young men and women come to know the Lord and grow in their relationship with him. They believe that Australia is a strategic place to do this, and are excited to be joining the team there!
Austin studied architecture at Kansas State University and was involved in Student Mobilization or “StuMo,” a campus ministry that seeks to build spiritual leaders for Christ from the college campuses of the world. He attended StuMo’s summer project called “Kaleo” where God opened his eyes to the need for following Christ. After that summer, Austin was given opportunities to travel to India and the Philippines and to serve as a leader at two more Kaleo projects. Since following Christ, he has grown a heart for his friends who don’t know the gospel and for all peoples around the world. He is excited to get to join CO SERVE to advance the gospel in Brisbane, Australia and throughout the world!

Born right outside of the nation’s capital, Ashley was raised in a Christian community that nourished her with truth. As she grew, she understood the gospel on a personal level as God began to transform her heart and mind. Her local church and campus ministry in college guided her into a deeper relationship with Jesus and gave her a desire to show others what it means to be made alive in Christ. She recognized the need for laborers overseas and is grateful that she can be a part of what God is doing as He makes disciples of all nations!
