The Galbraith Family
Glen and Tammy Galbraith
Serving in Great Britain
Sons Ready to Follow
Glen and Tammy Galbraith are alums of Faith who have served for many years in Great Britain. They served for eight years in Scotland before recently relocating to the London area where they are now working with Stan and Paula Boelman, also Faith alumgs.
We appreciate the faithful ministry of the Galbraiths in missionary service for Christ. We are also pleased to have their two sons, Trevor and Timothy, as students at Faith. Trevor started in the fall of 2010, and Tim enrolled in the fall of 2012. Their younger sister, Heather, still is at home.
What is so significant is that both Trevor and Timothy have a burden to return to Great Britain to serve the Lord there. Let them tell you a little about themselves and their desire for ministry.
How did the Lord lead you to Faith?
Trevor: Both of my parents went to Faith, and I had been here a few times before. I knew God wanted my in the ministry in some way and Faith was the first place that came to mind.
Tim: For many years I had felt God calling me into full-time Christian service. Recently He worked it out for me to attend Faith to prepare myself for His service.
What are you studying at Faith?
Trevor: I am in the Biblical Studies program with Biblical Counseling minor.
Tim: I'm currently in the four-year missions program.
What are your plans after you finish at Faith?
Trevor: When I've finished my degree, I plan to go back to Britain with my wife, Amelia. Hopefully we will be able to work with my parents for a while before heading into full-time ministry. God is opening doors for us already.
Tim: I plan to go back to the UK into missions, probably to work with another missionary family. After that, I want to go into church planting.
What is one way God is using Faith to shape you?
Trevor: God has stretched my own abilities in terms of public speaking, interpersonal relationships, and counseling. I wouldn't have been able to gain all of the ministry knowledge and experience without FBBC.
Tim: Even during my first year here I can already tell that God will use Faith to strengthen my walk with Him and help me to get a better grasp of how to minister to others.
What was your first impression when you got on campus?
Trevor: When I first got here, I thought it was way too hot!
Tim: Other than the searing heat, one of my first impressions was how nice the Student Center was, especially compared to how my parents had described it when they were at Faith. [Tim started school in August of 2012 during one of the hottest summers on record in Iowa. Both of thenm will love January!]
What is your favorite food here and back home?
Trevor: My favorite food in the states is probably wings. My favorite in the UK is a Cornish pasty.
Tim: My favourite food back home is probably a Cornish pasty or maybe a steak pie. Here, though, I would probably have to go with a B-bops burger, especially on Mondays when they are only $1.
What’s your hobby? What do you do for fun?
Trevor: When I'm not busy working, reading, studying, and generally being married, I like to longboard, play video games, and take naps.
Tim: My hobbies used to consist of playing video games and hanging out with friends. Now, however, those have been replaced by reading, table tennis, and then more reading.
Faith was pleased to help prepare Glen and Tammy for their missionary ministry, and we are now pleased to have a part in preparing Trevor and Tim for ministry in Great Britain.
