Brittany van Wyk
During a six-month discipleship program, Brittany's lifelong Christian "religion" was transformed into an actual relationship with Christ. It was then that she knew she wanted to be in full-time ministry. She spent two years serving with Beautiful Gate Ministries, a residential home for children with HIV outsides of Cape Town, South Africa. It was one of the most rewarding opportunities, and she loved the cross-cultural experience. Brittany served as preschool teacher, helped on the multidisciplinary committee, and eventually moved into outreach coordination where she planned and hosted incoming mission trips and teams. This is where she started understanding her giftings in administration, coordinating, and logistical support.
Since 2013, Brittany served alongside her husband in camping ministry just outside of San Diego as she worked with college-aged students in leadership development and discipleship roles. It was truly meaningful to see the relationships that had grown and matured and the fruit in these young adults years later. It was a very similar experience that helped shape and root her faith during that discipleship program at a similar age.
As the Director of Operations, Brittany is most excited about using her administrative gifts to assist KidZ at Heart with their mission of equipping people to reach and teach kids for Christ within their own culture. Brittany has been on staff with KidZ at Heart since 2018.
Brittany is married to Jacques (her much better half!) and is a mom to three awesome kids: Roman, Selah and Titus. Motherhood is the best and hardest job she's ever had. She never tires of the mountainous landscape of her home in rural east county San Diego.
