    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.

    I grew up in a Christian home, where belief in Jesus Christ was expected. I understood what Jesus did for me on the cross, but did not understand how that allowed me to have a relationship with Him. The Lord found me while searching for significance and approval. Between going to Christian camps, VBS, and regular church services, I came to know what it meant for me to count the cost, pick up my cross, and follow Him. In 2013, the Lord saved my soul. He sent me to college, surrounded by discipleship and community. I am truly convinced of Jesus’ mission and long to carry it out to the nations.

    Originally from small-town Port Aransas in south Texas, Chase graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas where he received a degree in Marketing and played collegiate baseball for three years. In his freshman year, God used the ministry of Campus Outreach to open his eyes to the need of a savior, and he ultimately surrendered his life to the Lord at a New Years Conference his freshman year. After four years in the ministry as a student, he now looks to join CO Serve in the international section of the ministry. He will be joining the CO Lead team that will be going to Lusaka, Zambia for two years in hopes to have the gospel reach the ends of the earth.

    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.
