John & Laurel Archer

Ministry Location: Worldwide

Ministry ​Focus: John directs humanitarian relief and development projects and gospel witness in Africa and Asia. Their calling is to serve in the world’s impossible places. They have two children, Caleb and Emma. Their desire is to open doors for people to impact their world in ways and places they never thought possible. Their family is a witness to the fact that God can use unlikely candidates to do just this.

Ministry ​History: Fifteen years ago, they were living in a slum in Southeast Asia. It was hard but they loved it. However, when Caleb was diagnosed with autism and then later Emma was also diagnosed with autism, they returned to Canada concluding that the door to global service had closed. Yet over the years, God has led them into a new kind of mission involvement. In the last nine years they have facilitated ministry in 20 different countries.
