    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.

    In 2011, I came into my first year of university with a lot of misconceptions about God and the Bible. I began to investigate who Jesus really said He was with a CO staff person, and became a Christian later in my freshman year, and stayed involved with the ministry and our local church until I graduated. My prayer is that the Lord would continue to use His Word to call people out of Darkness into His marvelous light on the college campus in South Africa through my life, all for His fame and His glory!

    B.J. grew up in Clinton, South Carolina. During her freshmen year at The Citadel, she became a Christian through the ministry of Campus Outreach. After being changed by the good news of the gospel, she wanted to help others know the good news so she served with Campus Outreach at The Citadel for 8 years after graduation. With the desire for all people to know the gospel, she will now be serving with CO in Zambia. While at The Citadel she majored in Physical Education. She loves hiking, cherry coke, and Clemson Tiger football!

    DeAnna became a Christian during her sophomore year of college at Southeast Missouri State, and since then has had a passion to evangelize the lost and disciple those around her. For the last 8 years on staff with Campus Outreach Memphis, she has had the opportunity to Build Laborers on the Campus for the Lost World. DeAnna will lead a team of college graduates to expand the Gospel in the Zambian harvest field and is trusting God to transform the lives of university students in Lusaka, throughout Africa, and to the ends of the earth. She is most looking forward to building relationships with Zambians, eating Nshima, and engaging the culture with her team.
