Jeff Coppins is the Southeast Regional Director of Development with Back2Back Ministries (B2B) and currently lives in Greenville, South Carolina. Jeff's personal involvement with orphans and vulnerable children began in 2005 when he and his wife Ashley adopted their first child, Haley. Since then, they have adopted three more children: Aidyn, Tyler, and Henry. Jeff and Ashley also started Fellowship Greenville's orphan care ministry, Hope for Children. Through this ministry, they have mentored numerous couples and families through the adoption process.
Jeff's relationship with B2B started in October of 2013 when he went to Monterrey, Mexico on a scouting trip to see if B2B would be a good ministry partner for members of Fellowship Greenville to serve alongside. Needless to say, the scouting trip was a success. Over these past few years, he has been blessed to visit Monterrey multiple times, each time leaving inspired and compelled to action. Following these visits, meetings with key B2B staff, and time in prayer with wise counsel of friends and family, Jeff accepted the role of Southeast Regional Director of Development with B2B Ministries. With a professional background in sales and project management, it has been humbling and exciting to see how God has been preparing and shaping him for this role both professionally and personally.
Way to Pray: Haley is entering high school, and Aidyn is entering middle school. We are currently praying about which schools they will attend. Haley attends Southside Christian School, and cost is a huge concern.
Henry was recently diagnosed with autism. Help us pray for new therapists that will help him grow to achieve all God has planned for him. Please continue to pray for Back2Back staff in Haiti as they are working to launch a “Strong Families” program in-country and are also dealing with trying to finish projects on the new property all while dealing with political unrest.
