Dustin and Carolyn Denning

South Africa
Living Hope


I was born and raised in Nashville. My brother owns a small trucking company and I have been working with him the last 8 years in the transportation industry. It's been an honor to be involved with Children's Ministry at BBC the last 5 years teaching Life Groups. I have been blessed to have the same group of kids for three of those years. We have all grown together in Christ and these kids are huge part of my journey. 

In September 2014, I will be moving to Cape Town South Africa to be a Life Skill Educator as a volunteer for Living Hope. I will be mentoring and training children and teenagers to make good choices in life, particularly in respect of sexuality, HIV and AIDS and substance abuse. I have been on 5 short term BBC VBS mission journeys and my passion and love for the kids and teenagers along with Living Hope has grown each year. I have served in the same township each year and look forward to building on relationships already started and beginning many more!
