Brendan is a native of the great state of New Jersey, but spent his college years studying at Michigan State. It was there that he met his beautiful wife, Sophie. They were married in his senior year of college and soon after, were off to Maryland to plant a new UCO chapter at the University of Maryland. Four-and-a-half years and three kids later, they are back at MSU where Brendan serves as a Mission Director. In his free time, Brendan enjoys date nights with Sophie, hiking and looking for wildlife with his kids, and MSU sports.

Clara, a born and raised Michigander, has delighted in living and serving in Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Detroit and Lansing Michigan.

She loves going on walks, jamming on the djembe, budgeting, playing ultimate frisbee and spreading the joy of the Lord.

Joseph Mathias graduated from the University of Michigan in 2007 and began serving on UCO staff two years later. In the course of his service he has found great delight in hosting dinners and bible studies for international students, teaching courses that cover the basic truths of Christianity, and writing music for worship. He is a member of the Servants of the Word, a missionary brotherhood of men living single for the Lord.

 

Eric Lynch
Mission Director

Eric was born and raised in Lansing Michigan. He came to know the Lord his freshman year of college through University Christian Outreach. Eric originally attended college to become a firefighterbut decided to leave the heat because he felt the Lord calling him into ministry, thus leading him to receive a bachelor’s in Ministry Leadership at Cornerstone University. He has served on staff in Jacksonville, Florida and led a local youth group called Christian Youth in Action. Eric plans to attend seminary and eventually move into a pastorate position with a local church.
