Brian and Patricia Alford
Brian was born in Jackson, Mississippi on January 6, 1957 and Patricia was born in Maryland on October 26, 1960. They were both “bus kids.” Brian was led to Christ by youth director, Jim Chance, of Candlestick Baptist Church. Patricia was saved at a revival meeting, preached by Raymond Hancock.
Brian retired from the United States Navy after over twenty-two years of service. The Alfords have two children and four grandchildren.
The Alfords attended BBTI during 2000 and 2001. Shortly after graduation in 2001, they were on their way to the field of Thailand when Patricia was struck with a brain aneurysm and underwent emergency surgery. Both her home church and the doctors decided that she should not go to the foreign field. The leaders of BBTI asked them to join its staff, and they did. Brian teaches Linguistics, Greek, and World Survey; and Patricia is our office manager.
