The Byrd Family



Welcome to the Byrd family official website!  We are on staff with Campus Outreach Johannesburg (COJ) in Johannesburg, South Africa.  Nothing brings us more joy than delighting in Jesus and spreading a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ to all peoples in all nations!  You can join us on the  great commission of making much of Christ in South Africa and beyond right here where our mindset becomes missional by being informed of the need for missions both locally and globally!


Go, Pray or Send is the mandate from the scriptures.  Go make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). Pray to the Lord of the harvest, for the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few (Matthew 9:35-38). Send out those who have been discipled, equipped and called to share the gospel (2 Tim. 2:2). The question we have is, what Christian is not called to do these things?  Everyone is called to participate in the advancement of God's kingdom.  However, how can we go if we don't know where to go?  How can we send up prayers and petitions for the unreached if we know nothing about their needs?  How can we send funds or the next generation of missionaries out if we don't know where to send them?  We have to be an informed people.  And we hope this website not only informs you of the great needs of South Africa and the world, but ignites a flame in you so passionate for God's glory and his people that you would daily ask the question, "what can I do for you today my precious Jesus?"

Are you ready?  Let's Go...
