SCOTT BRILL
Executive Director
scott@theinitiative.org

Scott grew up in the suburbs of Washington, DC and New York City. After attending Purdue University, he joined the staff of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. He has served InterVarsity for more than 35 years in various leadership roles around the New England region. He still works part-time for IVCF, continuing to develop a unique partnership with Campus Ministry at Assumption University in Worcester, MA. He is passionate about building bridges across places of historic division amongst the people of God. He has been shaped over the years by the life and thinking of people like St. Maximus the Confessor, Philip Melanchthon, Flannery O’Connor, John Lewis, Chiara Lubich, Robert Mulholland, Justo Gonzalez and T-Bone Burnett – along with many saints who never wrote a book or produced a work of art but whose Jesus-shaped life has influenced his. Scott lives in Worcester with his wife and not as close as he’d like to his three adult daughters (and new grandson!). 

STACY KIFER

Stacy Kifer, who is the daughter of the founder of The Initiative, John Armstrong, began to work and travel with her father as a teenager. She has been involved in this Christian ministry ever since. Her college degree in communications uniquely prepared her for this calling. She has found great joy in being “behind the scenes” during the transition from her father’s ministry to the new leadership of The Initiative. Stacy lives in Carol Stream, Illinois, with her five-year-old twin boys, Kaleb and Kobe. When she is not working, she enjoys being outdoors with her boys
