Bryan Davis has served as a missionary to Senegal since 1996. He and his wife Laura work in French and Wolof, the local language of northern Senegal. Together they have helped start the second largest private school system in Senegal, specializing in opening schools in Muslim towns that have no local church. He has taught anthropology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and now specializes in studying leadership in the African context. Bryan and Laura have twins who are freshmen this year at NCU.
