Jana and Brett Aplin

Hi! We are Brett and Jana Aplin. We've been married for almost 5 years and love to travel the world, try new foods, play strategic board games, go hiking, and host dinner parties with our friends and family. Previously, Brett coached competitive gymnastics and Jana was a nanny in our hometown of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA. In January of 2016 we transitioned to virtual careers so that we could travel full-time. Brett still works for the same gymnastics facility in a remote capacity, and is also a Life Coach. Jana is a writer for a marketing company and parenting magazine. 
Starting in July, Brett will begin working at our church in Tennessee as the Executive Pastor of Operations and Missions. This opportunity to serve at RIC was a direct answer to prayer, and we fully believe that our time here will equip and grow us for the upcoming season! The freedom of our time and location allows us to serve your congregation with our talents and giftings. Both of us have experience with youth, from babysitting to coaching to running around with our bunch of nieces and nephews. Jana has worked with the youth group at our home church for over 3 years, and Brett regularly played on the worship team. 
We'd love to get to know you! Say "Hi" on Sunday morning, send us an email (ric.ministryintern@gmail.com), or come hang out Sunday evenings at youth group!
