Who We Are


Tim and Niai Byrd are full time missionaries with Campus Outreach in Johannesburg, South Africa.  Tim has been on staff for 9 years.  Niai joined Tim in marriage and ministry in September of 2009.  As a family they have a desire to personally experience the power of the gospel and to bring the gospel to lost students in order that God may be glorified in all nations. Tim has been the campus director at Wits University for several years.  However, he has recently become area director over Wits University and the University of Johannesburg at Bunting overseeing the staff on each campus.

Both Tim and Niai grew up as army kids traveling throughout the USA and Europe.  They both also graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.  Niai has a degree in English and Tim a degree in both English and Africana Studies.  However, their flock is not complete without including their two year old daughter Thandiwe and their next daughter due February 3, 2013.
