Location: Slovakia, Eurasia
Ministry Focus: In August 2020, Paul and Lynn answered a Macedonian-type call to transition from Africa to Eurasia! And during the upheaval of COVID 19, they have managed to make the monumental move to Slovakia in Central Europe to develop a 2nd year program with an emphasis in leadership for Gateway College. Gateway (which has been birthed and nurtured by colleagues Miro and Marta Toth and Kristus Mestu Church in Nitra, SK) is the bible college of The Apostolic Church in Slovakia. The primary focus and passion of the ministry is to develop young leaders to become a church planting movement across the region. Both will teach in the college and come alongside leaders to help build and expand the kingdom in this ever-so-needy post communist, post-Christian very secular mission field.
Ministry History: Forty-one years ago, Paul answered the call to work at Pan Africa Christian University in Nairobi, Kenya. Two years later, he and Lynn were married and have spent 22 years in theological education in Kenya (1979-1989, 2008-2020), and 16 years total at EPBC/Master's College and Seminary in Peterborough, ON (1992-2008) with 2 of those years on Sabbatical in Ethiopia serving at Pentecostal Theological College and the Abyssinia Missionary Program in Addis Ababa (1998-2000). Paul's Motto has been 'to grow leaders and build institutions'. He has enjoyed working alongside college faculty developing them, creating programs and contributing to the growth of each institution. Lynn has taught theology over the years and used her primary gifting as a preacher/teacher in the church as an associate teaching pastor.
- That we would learn and adapt to this totally different culture and climate!
- That the Holy Spirit would enable us to be effective in our ability to communicate in a country where English is such a minority language.
- For a healing touch from the Lord on Lynn's lung condition.
