Brinna Kolitz is a missionary through the US-2 young adult program of the General Board of Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church. Commissioned in August 2011, she is assigned to the Family Support Network in Billings, Montana, in the Yellowstone Annual Conference.
US-2 missionaries are young adults who serve two-year terms in the United States. Their work, often with the poor, integrates faith and justice as they learn from and walk with communities in their struggles to address systematic injustice and human suffering.
Family Support Network is a private agency providing in-home parenting support, primarily among poor or marginalized families. Brinna assists with support services that seek to improve home environments, enhance family relationships, and reduce stress in the home.
Brinna is a native of Connecticut and a member of the New Milford United Methodist Church in that city, which is located within the New York Annual Conference. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Southern Connecticut State University, New Haven, and can communicate in English and French.
"I was born and raised in the New Milford United Methodist Church," she says, "and was always interested in church activities be it choirs, youth groups, plays, worship, or mission. I have been involved in many amazing mission projects." Those projects include a local food pantry, regional mission trips, and an orphanage in Mozambique, which she visited in 2005.
Brinna has a strong commitment to mission and ministry that conveys the fact that Christians care about people. "There are people throughout the world and in our backyards that are being forgotten," she says. "I want to commit my life to show that someone remembers."
