We met kids in Kenya that were being raped and abused daily. They were starving. They were stuck in a vicious cycle of poverty, destruction and brokenness. We saw this as a problem not only for these kids but the future of Kenya and for the world.

We started Be Free Revolution to address these problems at the root. We have seen hundreds of kids and families lives dramatically transformed and cycles of poverty broken through trades, education and counseling.

Our mission is to help others help themselves full circle. We work to relieve hunger, empower men and women, counsel the vulnerable and teach them tools for success.

GOing is where BFR began, in the trenches, on mission, serving. We believe that we all should be on mission everyday whether that means you are GOing to a foreign land or GOing in your own neighborhood.

The example that we follow of serving is Christ. No matter your religious affiliation, you cannot deny that Jesus was a man that came to serve not to be served. He helped and loved the marginalized, he fed the hungry, he dined with the “unclean” and he healed the sick. This is what we strive to do daily.

We believe that God has put in each of us qualities to lead. Through our families, our friends, our example and our daily lives. We believe that we are called to be The Church and to lead others to the love of the lord.

Love has no language barrier. Showing love can change a person’s life forever and we feel that this simple act can change the world.

BRITNEY CHRISTIE

co-founder

I was a teacher before kids and my life in BFR and God has used that on the field in Africa as well as in The Rev. I adore my fun-loving kids Lynlee and Everhett and my husband Michael is my biggest supporter and keeps me grounded. I have a passion for serving, teaching and leading. I'm a mix between an introvert and extrovert and a type A and a type B. I am beyond grateful for this crazy, lovely, tough life of serving Jesus. Through BFR and The Rev I get to be a small part of the big puzzle of God's Kingdom.

LACEY STLUKA

co-founder

I worked in advertising, public relations and e-commerce for 6 years before following God's call to start Be Free Revolution and The Rev alongside my partner in crime, Britney. I am passionate about being passionate! I am wife to my amazing husband, Adam, and mother to our sweet new son, Miles who I take too many pictures of!  I typically live in a tone of sarcasm, love a great read, am classically clumsy, love filling up my passport & writing stories and am tomboy at heart.

I am a born and raised Memphis gal living in North Carolina with my husband Jake and baby girl due early 2020. I attended the University of Memphis (go tigers!) and earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I began serving with BFR on medical missions a few years ago and then officially joined the BFR crew in 2018. I am a lover of coffee, mystery books, and exploring our little beach town with my family. BFR Kids stole my heart, and I am so grateful that the Lord called me to be a part of this mission.
