David Britt was born and raised in the Tampa Bay, Florida area. He was born with Cerebral Palsy, but is just like anybody else in this (crazy) world. In 2015, David moved to Branson and joined FPC youth group as a student himself, but in 2016 he joined the youth volunteer staff. He loves to talk and get to know people so don’t be afraid to sit and have a chat with him. David believes that everyone has a purpose in life, you just have to keep a eye out for it! David was homeschool for Jr. High and High School, and received his G.E.D. (General Education Diploma) in 2016. David likes to spend time in the cool weather and enjoys hanging out with friends. David hopes to study youth ministry and become a youth leader someday.
My name is Ethan Tabbert, and before moving to Branson for the Kanakuk Institute I lived in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. I just graduated in May from the University of Sioux Falls with a double major in Chemistry and Theology and Philosophy. I also just got to experience my one-year anniversary of being married to my wonderful wife, Sierra. One of the things I enjoy doing most in my free time is running. I ran cross country and track throughout high school and college and it is now something I love to do with my wife. After the Kanakuk Institute both Sierra and I have our eyes set on going overseas to be long term missionaries. I am excited this year to be able to build relationships and grow, challenge, and be challenged in my walk with Christ alongside the youth.
