Exciting things are happening within BFR and now The Rev. Among these exciting things come the announcement of our newest crew member, Morgan Cooper as our Fundraising and Ministry Development Director! Morgan was born and raised in North Alabama and graduated from Pensacola Christian College with a degree in elementary education before teaching in Memphis for 5 years.
We initially met Morgan at a local craft fair where she became interested in serving on a BFR mission trip! She and her husband Jared decided to join our September 2013 team heading to Kenya. Three months later, she joined our December team and we saw something special ignite in her. She caught the spark that changes your life forever.
Morgan will tell you that God called her at the age of 14 to do mission work. She served in Ivory Coast in 2007 before serving in Kenya with BFR and it quickly became her heartbeat. Morgan exudes such special qualities- strength, faith, passion, vision- and has one of the largest hearts we have ever seen. The mark she has already left across the globe is vast and we knew she was special and that God had a plan specifically for her with missions and BFR.
Besides serving on mission, Morgan began to volunteer through our Core Team helping advise on fundraising, trips, and BFR all the way around. Her passion for the BFR mission was growing and you could see that she was being called to do even more within our ministry.
As a teacher, Morgan had extra time this Summer to volunteer in our office consistently and work side by side with us each day. During these months, we knew she was a perfect fit. Her passion is contagious and her work ethic was superior alongside her impeccable character and intense love for the mission of BFR.
Those of you that have worked with Morgan in any facet know that God has prepared this woman for this role! Please join us in welcoming Morgan Cooper as Director of Fundraising and Ministry Development.
