Bryan & Molly Canny
Bryan and Molly Canny are career missionaries with Evangelical Church Missions serving in Bolivia, South America. Molly (Treiber) served from 2006-2009 in Bolivia working in children’s ministry and teaching at the Santa Cruz Christian Learning Center. Bryan and Molly met in July 2009, married in May 2010 and arrived in Santa Cruz, Bolivia in April 2011 to follow God’s call to serve together. Brian and Molly have three daughters, Cecelia, Liliana, and Adelina.
Bryan and Molly work closely with the Bolivian Evangelical Church. In 2012 they led the way in opening Nueva Esperanza (New Hope) Tutoring Center meeting the need of children in the community who had nowhere to go after their half-day of school. These children were often locked in at home alone or locked out of their homes and wandering the streets.
In the first couple of years, the Canny’s served as directors in charge of recruiting volunteers, lesson planning, buying materials, and day-to-day operations of the tutoring centers. As the ministry has developed, and with the help of the Canny's, Bolivian directors and instructors have learned to design and implement programs that not only minister to children but also help local churches get involved with families who don’t yet know Christ.
In February 2017, a second center, Vida Nueva (New Life) Tutoring Center was opened and many more children were able to get the assistance needed to succeed in school, emerge from poverty, and live eternally with Christ. In 2019, a third center opened Prince of Peace. In the coming years, the Canny’s will be working to multiply this ministry model in different neighborhoods in Santa Cruz and eventually across Bolivia.
Bryan graduated from Vennard College in 2006 with degrees in Pastoral Ministries and Bible. Molly graduated from Grace University in 2006 with degrees in Elementary Education and Bible. Bryan and Molly have three beautiful daughters, Cecilia, Liliana, and Adelina.
