"I will make you a Light for the Nations, to take my salvation to the ends of the earth" Isaiah 49:6
Ministry Focus: In 2018, after 16 years of coordinating Light for the Nations (Isa.49:6), and 9 years serving in the RAN Region, we joined GlobalEd team as mission equipping specialists. The international educational wing of PAOC, Global Ed serves multiple educational and training institutions around the world, all of which teach Biblical theology and ministry, but many of which do not yet have a Great Commission focus. Our heart is to expand the capacity of our international partner fellowships to engage the world for Jesus, and to continue to serve new global workers being sent by non-western churches.
At this age-stage in our lives, our vision is to develop a team of seasoned global workers with a passion to ensure the next generation of missionaries are well-equipped for long-term, fruitful life and ministry, and especially mobilized to go beyond where the Gospel has already gone -- to reach the world’s remaining Unreached and Unengaged Peoples.
When we are not travelling internationally, we serve part-time on the pastoral staff in our local church in –and enjoy time with our growing family of 10 grandchildren and great-grand-daughter.
Ministry History: The greatest need of the world today is still what Jesus said - more workers for the harvest! After leaving pastoral ministry in 1998 to serve Ukraine, in 2002, we responded to the call to multiply labourers, primarily in non-western, emerging missional churches around the world. Since then we also lived and served in Turkey and Indonesia. Along the way, we've been privileged to provide training in many countries, from the Philippines to Argentina, from Zambia to Russia as well as serving our own PAOC global workers at Segue and on-line.
In 2016 we had to return to Canada for health reasons. We are now Canada-based and serve part-time. The work goes on, however, with opportunities to mobilize more missionaries in places like Argentina, Cuba, Ukraine, Dominican Republic, and India.
- Health and strength to fulfill our calling.
- Fresh anointing on our teaching and in the hearts of our students.
- More workers to go to the unreached and unengaged peoples of the world.
