About Bryan and Erin Thigpen

Bryan and Erin Thigpen, along with their three boys Logan, Landon, and Levi, live in Tucson, Arizona and minister to students at the University of Arizona.

Before moving back to Tucson the Thigpen’s joined The Navigators as full-time program staff at Eagle Lake Camps and The Glen Eyrie Conference Center in Colorado Springs in 2006. In 2011 they moved overseas to Christchurch, New Zealand to work with the NZ Navigators as campus leaders at the University of Canterbury on the South Island of NZ. They returned to the US in 2015 to take on a new role with collegiate ministry at UCR in Riverside until the summer of 2018. They now work alongside university students and recent graduates to encourage them in their faith, and train them to reach out to a new generation of people with the message of Jesus Christ in the Tucson community and the University of Arizona.

With a total enrollment of over 43,000 students, the UofA campus is a ripe harvest field for producing lifelong laborers for God’s Kingdom work!

The Thigpen’s have been called to reach out to the lost with the hope and saving message of Jesus Christ and to also train up faithful men and women to share that truth with others. “And the things you have heard me say in the presence of many witnesses entrust to reliable men who will also be qualified to teach others.” 2 Tim. 2:2
