Brian Fox is the father of six children. He and his wife Sue (to whom he has been married since 1973) began homeschooling their children in 1982 – a labor of love and dedication that wrapped up in 2011 when the youngest graduated from high school. Five of Brian’s children have participated in short-term international missions and greatly benefited from the experience. Brian taught music and computers in public schools in southern California for 25 years. In addition, he has significant administrative experience and holds a credential in public school administration. He is currently “retired” – which in his case means he runs a business, is working on a doctorate, teaches online students, and participates in the ministry of Global Encounters. Brian has been involved in music ministry for many years, both in the ministries at his church and by leading orchestras, choirs, and congregational music at Christian conferences. He also continues to teach music workshops several times a year and especially enjoys discipling and encouraging high school and college-age young people through the medium of music.
