    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.

    Alicia is an Illinois native who came to know the Lord in the fall of 2013. She then went to Murray State University, where she was connected with the local church and Campus Outreach. During her time at MSU, she joined a discipleship group and learned how to share her faith with others. Alicia began to ask the Lord, like Isaiah, with an open hand, to send her wherever He would want her, and she would go. The Lord sent her to Lusaka, Zambia for two years and grew her love for and dependency on Him. Alicia is convinced that the students on the college campuses in Zambia will reach the lost world through the local church, while also convinced that she is to use her gifts to serve the team that serves the college campuses. Alicia is thankful for the opportunity to serve the Lord in this capacity. Her favorite hymn is “ The Old Rugged Cross,” because as she clings to this cross in this life, one day, she will exchange it for a crown.

    My name is Shalom Thembekile Ndhlovu from Lusaka, Zambia. I was born in Botswana and raised there for 16 years. I came to know the Lord early in 2012, and later that year, my family settled back in Zambia. I studied at the University of Zambia, and it is there that I learned of Kabwata Baptist Church through friends who were members there. I joined KBC membership in 2019 and got to experience Campus Outreach through Tim and Niai Byrd, the team, and the church members that volunteered. From then, God placed in my heart the desire to give my life away so that others may know Christ and grow in their faith alongside other believers. This led me to join CO Lusaka, and through it, I’ve experienced more of the body of Christ and the love God calls us to. #Jesus&Relationships

    I grew up going to church and considered myself a Christian. As a middle-schooler, I began to read the Bible and say an occasional prayer, just because it felt like the Christian thing to do. In high school, I became convicted that while I was doing Christian activities, I did not really know who God was. God was faithful to show Himself to me, and through reading the Gospel of John and seeing God at work in my life, I began to have a relationship with Christ. I attended Elon University where I became involved with Campus Outreach my freshman year. Through being a part of Campus Outreach in Dunedin, New Zealand during a semester abroad, I began to see how God is drawing the nations to Himself. I am humbled that God would choose to use even me to bring glory to His name in Lusaka, Zambia!

    I (Njekwa) was born into a Christian family, both my parents were believers. Because of this, some of my siblings came to know the Lord early in their lives, and I could see that there was something different about them compared to me. I tried everything I could to be like them but ultimately failed. I knew the gospel message well, but I just couldn’t believe in a saving way and gave up all hope of ever being a Christian. In 2009, the Lord saved me at a camp hosted by Kabwata Baptist Church. Finally, this Jesus who I had heard about all my life was not just the Savior of others, He was my personal Savior. I began to serve in the church (Kabwata Baptist) and this brought great joy to my heart. Before long, I realized that this was something I wanted to do all the time. To spend and be spent for the expansion of God’s kingdom, anything else seems pale in comparison.

    I (Jaela) graduated from the University of Memphis and while there, surrendered my life to the Lord. Ever since then, God has molded my heart for Himself and His children. My passion is to help expectant mothers and newborn babies.

At the conclusion of his Sophomore year, Alex decided to give his life to Christ, and at the start of his Junior year, he became part of Campus Outreach.

He is now married and is very excited to join the team in Lusaka, Zambia with his family!

    Brittany is a North Carolina native who credits the foundation of her faith to growing up in church from a young age. It wasn’t until her college years that she made the commitment to dedicate her life to Jesus. She worked for a season as a Corporate Educator before answering the Lord’s call to vocational ministry through overseas missions. After living and serving for a year in Lima, Peru in Women’s Prison Ministry, Brittany returned to the US and spent six years serving as an Educator and Recruiter for an international mission organization.

    Grace grew up in Paragould, Arkansas and graduated from Arkansas State University. She came to know the Lord personally during her sophomore year of college. At a Campus Outreach conference, the Lord led Grace to repent of her sins and put her faith in Jesus Christ for salvation. Throughout the rest of Grace’s time in college, the Lord deepened her compassion for the lost world and grew her dependency on Him. The Lord had such an impact on Grace’s life while she was in college, and now has put in her heart a desire to share the Gospel with college students around the world. Grace is excited to join the ministry team in Lusaka, Zambia. She will have the opportunity to build relationships with the students and advance the Gospel on the college campus. God loves all His people, and He is on a mission for them, and she wants to be a part of that mission too.
