Brian is a graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary (ThM 2014). His vision is to produce 25-year-old followers of Jesus Christ. His family will be moving to Kaiserslautern, Germany in August to reach the more than 1500 military teens (a.k.a. “brats”) stationed there. If you are concerned for the challenges facing military teens and would like to partner with the Hershey’s, online donations can be made by clicking here. All new gifts through August 15, 2014 will be doubled to help them hit their goal of $1,560 in new monthly partners. They would be honored and grateful for your support. This article chronicles their unbelievable fundraising journey to K-town.
