Team Leader Tuesday spotlight: Brian Creveling

Brian Creveling is leading our first ever Father/Daughter mission trip - click here to check out his July trip to Haiti.

Brian Creveling felt God leading him to adopt back in high school, but it wasn’t until he and his wife got married before this became a reality in his life. They started investigating international adoption around their first anniversary, but with limited options for countries open to allowing couples married less than 2 years to adopt, Brian and Kat took a trip with Visiting Orphans in 2008 to Ethiopia, where God opened his eyes to the plight of the orphaned and fatherless and confirmed that his two daughters were going to come from there. Since then, it has been on Brian and Kat’s heart to raise all of their children with an understanding of the need to be missional in their lives and to take care of those who are unable to take care of themselves. Within 1 year of having his Ethiopian daughters home, Brian felt God calling him to have lead a father/daughter trip to Haiti, a country that had been in his heart since the devastating earthquake of 2010. He also learned to appreciate those who loved on his daughters as they waited in the orphanage for their forever family.

Brian is hopeful that his generation of men can and will choose to step up and change America and the world by providing stable homes and displaying Godly character in all areas of their lives. He desires to see a rededication of fathers to their families and homes, where the next generation of daughters will learn to become more confident in themselves and become world changers. Brian loves “dating” his daughters – going out and spending dedicated one on one face time with each one of them at least once a month…especially because none of them will spend that time watching football with him.
