Robbie Ross Jr.
Robbie is married to Brittany Ross. Robbie and Brittany are high-school sweethearts and have been married since 2010. Robbie currently plays professional baseball for the Boston Red Sox. In his downtime he hunts, travels, practices yoga, golfs, and loves hanging out with his younger brothers. Robbie envisioned starting Mission 108 because his wife sparked an interest in him to do more for the world we live in. He felt stirred to do more with his platform than just play baseball.
"God has directed my path to where I am right now. I have always felt called to further His Kingdom, and with Mission 108 I am trying to do that each and everyday. Anti-human trafficking is extreme and not a normal mission field. It's amazing to be in an extreme place for Christ! I feel very blessed to be working with everyone involved in Mission 108."
Kentucky native, Brittany is dedicated to healing and inspiring others through teaching Yoga. In addition to teaching, Brittany travels the world running Mission 108 and supporting her husband’s professional Baseball career.
Britt is a self proclaimed hippie, gypsy wanderer with a knack for packing and moving Robbie, herself, and their 3 dogs multiple times per year.
Brittany went on her first mission trip in 2012 to Ethiopia doing medical and dental work. Since then, she has traveled internationally multiple times a year working in the slums of Africa, orphanages in Haiti and the Dominican Republic, and most recently, safe houses in India. Her passion for bringing hope to the extreme poor and survivors of Human Trafficking is the backbone of Mission 108.
“We Belong To Each Other” - Brittany Ross
Lexington, Ky native, Courtney Evans, earned a BA in International Studies from the University of Kentucky and a MS in International Development from Tulane University. During her time at Tulane, Courtney worked for the human rights department (OHCHR) of the UN in Bangkok, Thailand. After, she worked for the International Labor Organization (ILO) at the UN in Washington, DC and Pew Research Center where she coded data for their annual report on religious freedom. After earning her masters, she spent two years serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Pasaje, Ecuador working with children in gender equality, drug and alcohol prevention, and human rights promotion.
Courtney, Brittany, and Robbie have been friends since high school. Mission 108 supported a Peace Corp gender equality sport camp lead by Courtney that reached over 80 adolescents on human rights, leadership skills, goal setting, and domestic abuse prevention. This eventually led to God opening the door for Courtney to come on board with Mission 108 as the global partnerships director. Courtney (aka Coco) is excited to work alongside life-long friends and fight for survivors of human trafficking.
