Our Board, Officers, and Team Members

Barb Hoffman

Chairman of the Board;
Student Growth

Barb and her husband Bryan first traveled to Uganda in 2006, which led to the connections On Belay has today. Barb's heart and passion for missions has inspired her to lead over 20 short term, student teams to Romania, Hungary, Ukraine, China, Dominican Republic, Latvia, and in the last 10 years to Uganda, Africa. They sponsor 3 kids in Uganda: Mercy (15), Betty (18) and Meshach (9). Having recently retired as an educator, she looks forward to continuing her journey to be a part of God's Kingdom work around the world.

Bryan Hoffman

Bryan's love for Africa began in 1971 when he taught school for three years in the Congo. In 2006, Bryan returned to Africa with his wife Barb. Since that time, they have continued to take teams and friends to meet the children and friends they love so much. Bryan retired from corporate life in 2013 and has changed his focus to serving in northern and southern Uganda. Bryan serves as chairman of a team that supports work in northeast Uganda and facilitates a World Missions Class at Cornerstone School of Ministry in Corvallis.
