Bryan Kenney

Bryan grew up in Florida where he attended Bradenton Christian School before studying philosophy and Biblical studies at Taylor University. Upon graduating in 2002, he made his first trip to Nepal and immediately felt compelled to serve the people there in whatever capacity he could. He has been a part of Love Justice since the ministry began, and he considers it a blessing to be able to continue his service as a member of the Board of Directors. He currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee, and enjoys visiting Nepal whenever he can to see how God's work has unfolded over the years.

After school, she and her husband, Jim, made Wilmington home. In addition to enjoying full careers in medical technology and clinical research, Christie also served as the Director of Missions at Port City Community Church for almost 10 years.

She considers serving alongside the Love Justice staff and board members a privilege and a blessing.

Mike Maletich

Mike grew up in Canton, Ohio, where he attended Malone University and studied youth ministry. He never worked in a church setting but rather entered the sales and management field with Vector Marketing upon graduation from college. That position took Mike and his wife, Mitzie, to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where they spent 13 years and started to raise their three children. In 2010 Mike left Vector Marketing and took a position with N2 Publishing as an area director in Pittsburgh. It is through the relationship with N2 that Mike was introduced to Love Justice. Mike, Mitzie, and their three children have since relocated back to Akron/Canton, Ohio. Mike went to Nepal for the first time in 2017 and was hooked. He is excited to be a part of an organization that fights on the behalf of those who have no voice and hopes to travel to Nepal and other Love Justice locations yearly, if possible.
