JT Townsends’ personal van will be presented to Harold Lawrence, father of Joshua “Brian ” Brantner, a young man who suffered a traumatic brain injury 12 years ago.

JT Townsend Foundation along with JT’s parents, Jerry and Carmen Townsend wanted JT’s van to go to the perfect person. They found that person recently.  Harold Lawrence and step-son Joshua “Brian” Brantner, have a dream to speak in all 50 states “teaching wise life choices, empowering those with physical, emotional and spiritual difficulties to overcome, live in victory and never give up.” (Thru the Roof Ministries.) Their 12-year-old van with over 178,000 miles of traveling with his dad at the wheel could not make it to the other 37 states.
