Our newest staff members, Brant and Sue Yount, bring a unique background and set of experiences to School Ministries Ohio.

As an attorney for 34 years, Sue will provide legal support to School Ministries OH and program. Brant is a chemist, chemical engineer and archery coach. Both have many personal and professional contacts throughout the state.

Brant and Sue Yount

One of unique ways God is providing for their needs is through raising cattle at a small farm in southeastern Ohio. They have a growing herd of Belted Galloway beef cattle and plan to offer grass-fed healthy beef in a few years. They also are in the planning stages of building a vacation rental near their home in Hocking Hills for small group retreats and family gatherings.

Sue met Executive Director, Jenni Miller, in 2014 through a phone call to work on the Released Time Bible education law. Sue was working at a large Columbus law firm with her practice mainly serving public school districts across Ohio, and Jenni was given Sue’s name as a resource.
They have continued the connection over the last six years. When Sue and Brant were considering early retirement to work in ministry full time, School Ministries Ohio presented itself as a great fit.

“Released Time is a great way to bring the Gospel message and life-changing support to children.”

Married 30 years, the Younts have 3 children (Lydia, Caleb, and Rachel), and their oldest daughter is married and relocated in Missouri. They bring their individual talents to the team — Brant as a creative visionary, and Sue with legal and organizational skills.

Their primary interest is to share the message of hope for a life abundant and eternal to children and families through the ministry of Released Time Bible Education throughout the state of Ohio.

Welcome to the team, Brant and Sue!
