Consultant Development Administrator
Andrew (27), Matthew (25), Joshua (22)
Brian and Shirley coordinate the global training and development of national Bible translation consultants, assist with Bible translation in Asia and provide academic and administrative assistance for translation teams. They do this all so that Asian language communities may have God’s word in their mother tongue.
Brian grew up visiting First Baptist Church over many years, as his parents were FBC missionaries in Brazil. After getting his MA at Dallas Theological Seminary, Brian went on for linguistic and translation training with Wycliffe. Shirley received her BA in Elementary Education and taught school for seven years before joining Wycliffe. They served in Thailand working on a translation project before working in global translation training.
