James R. Brian was a succesful businessman in Scott, Ohio when he felt God was calling him to work with "problem" boys and their families. After receiving a bachelor's degree in Bible and education from Ft. Wayne Bible College (Now Taylor University at Ft. Wayne), he and his wife and five children moved to Dayton, Ohio to set up and organize a ministry to struggling young men and their families known today as "Operation Rebirth". His wife passed away in 1987 and he married Susan in 1993. They have seven grown children and six grandchildren
