After graduating from Bob Jones University in 1963, Brant and his wife became the first missionaries sent to England under BIMI. Over the years, three churches were established.
Because of heart disease and surgery, Brant left Europe from 1972 to 1982. For five years he taught missions in a Bible college, and later pastored a church. In 1982, the family returned to England where the Lord led in establishing a church.
In 1988 they returned to the States because his wife, Vanita, became seriously ill and later passed away. During this time Brant became Assistant European Director and organized many trips to Eastern Europe for the purpose of distributing a million Bibles.
In 1996 Brant married the former Maylou Miles Richey. She is a graduate of Tennessee Temple College, was a Christian school teacher for seventeen years at Heritage Hall, Muncie, Indiana, and had been a widow for almost eight years when they met. Brant and Maylou have four children and seven grandchildren between them.
In 2002 Brant became European Director overseeing 73 families (130 missionaries) in 21 European countries. This involves visiting the missionaries on their fields, preaching and teaching in Europe, printing and distributing thousands of Bibles in Eastern Europe, encouraging the translation and distribution of Bible doctrine books, publishing the EUROPE magazine, and speaking in churches, schools, and colleges Stateside.
Their status as missionaries remains unchanged. They receive no income other than through faith giving from churches and individuals.
