Ministry Focus: Marvelyn serves as the ZOE Network Strategy Coordinator on the PAOC ZOE Network. ZOE Network consists of PAOC women leaders from across the country. These leaders are passionate advocates for women, and their shared mandate is to see PAOC women empowered, activated and mobilized into the mission of God here in Canada and abroad. Marvelyn helps to coordinate ZOE Projects and works to network Canadians to respond to the needs of vulnerable women around the world.
ZOE Projects works in four key areas:
- Human/Sex Trafficking
- Economic Empowerment
...all with a heart for Spiritual Transformation.
