About us . . .

This page is basically all you want to know about us (If you want to know more just ask!) . . .

Brian Reynolds was born May 4th, 1983 in Kankakee, IL, grew up his whole life in Bourbonnais, IL, graduated from Bradley-Bourbonnais Community High School in 2001 and then left Illinois for the State of Indiana.  He went to Huntington College from the fall of 2001 and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Art Education all-grade concentration and double minors of Visual Arts and Graphic Design.  During his stint at Huntington College, now Huntington University, Brian was involved with many short term mission trips (Including Honduras and NYC among many other community works.),  and began to feel a call into missions.  It was his freshman or sophomore year that he began to experience a more closer walk with Jesus Christ.

The summer of between his junior and senior years of college, Brian was blessed to go on a short term mission trip to the Czech Republic for 3 weeks to teach English and see the country.  During that time he really felt a desire to go and live and work with the Czech people but was waiting for the door to open.  Through staying in touch with the Pastor of the church that the English camp was organized through, Brian was offered a chance to work with the youth and teach English at the UM congregations of Valtice, Mikulov, and Lednice, CZ.  During this time Brian was a 1/4 supported by his home church, Grace United Methodist of Bourbonnais, IL and 3/4 supported by the Czech UM Church.  At the end of that year after his contract was up Brian accepted a position teaching middle school and Elementary School art at Vienna  Christian School.  The summer of 2006 was very difficult as it was the summer that Brian got engaged, reported to his home church on how the previous year went, asked about support for the next two years at Vienna Christian School, visited Brian’s brother in California, and went to training for the mission field all in about 35 days in the U.S.

Through the year when Brian was working in CZ, Alzbeta (Betka) Sykorova was working as an au pair in Bristol, England, taking a year off of conservatory for Viola in Brno.  She returned home to visit her family for about 10 days and that is when they met and fell in love and knew that the Lord had big plans for their life together.  She then went back to Bristol where she would finish the remainder of her commitment there.  She returned for good to CZ in February of 2006 and continued to finish her 5th and 6th years of conservatory in Brno.  Brian and Betka were engaged in June of 2006 during Betka’s first visit to the United States, and they were married on June 9th, 2007.  Their first child, a son, Tobias Martin, was born on July 28th, 2008.

Brian and Betka Reynolds with their sons Tobi and Izaak currently are committed to staying at the International Christian School of Vienna for the time being and look forward to each day that they can serve there.  Their current contract will keep them in Vienna until June of 2013, Lord-willing.   Please feel free to contact either Brian or Betka with any questions, needs, or comments you may have about their life and ministry.  They are looking forward to hearing from you!:)

Hi Reynolds,

it is wonderful how God connects people together like you, Brian and Betka, and uses them together! Thanks for the text, we can know about you more now. God will lead you and use you now and in the future: Psalm 25:12 What man is he that fears the Lord? him shall he teach in the way he should choose. (KJV)

God bless you!
Lukas with Jana
