Location: Asia & Canada
Ministry Focus: Darcy and Leanne McAlister serve together working with leaders in Asia, Canada and around the world. Their passion is for leaders to live out God’s mission from a place of health and wholeness. They work at this through 4 key areas.
- In Asia they lead our denominational mission in their city. They work with churches, a university, a school, and serve into the broader region around them. This mission was started decades ago by Sadie Macleod and it is the McAlister’s honour to continue this work.
- In Canada, Leanne heads up ZOE Network which connects women and men to God’s mission. Leanne and Darcy disciple leaders through ZOE and connect Canadians to the work our mission does with women overseas.
- Globally, Darcy and Leanne teach on marriage. They believe God puts couples together on purpose and His purpose for marriage is to demonstrate who He is! They work with couples, write marriage courses, and teach marriage seminars.
- Around the globe, they work with young leaders. They coach and mentor leaders towards a Spirit-filled life on mission using their gifts. Being online allows them to do this work in many places!
They are based in Asia for half the year, responding to the significant need and request for help from leaders in Asia. The other half is based in Canada serving the Canadian context in the same way, but with a focus on developing and resourcing women and men through ZOE Resources.
Darcy and Leanne both have their MA in Leadership and are certified leadership coaches. Darcy is also a certified Birkman consultant. Darcy and Leanne love teaching and ministering together across Canada and around the world. Feel free to contact them about ministry or teaching opportunities!

Ministry History: Darcy and Leanne said ‘yes’ to missions back in 1990, but it took a while for God to open the door! In the interim period they served pastorally in Surrey, Terrace, Langley, and Fort Langley (where Leanne was the Associate pastor and Darcy volunteered!). Darcy served as the District Next Gen director for over ten years in BC/Yukon where he started a missions internship program, a missions and discipleship program, and began holding retreats overseas for young global workers. Next Darcy and Leanne worked for 12 years with International Missions. Darcy served as the Personnel and Family Life Director, and Leanne started ZOE Network (which she continues to lead). In 2019, Darcy and Leanne said yes to serving overseas as well as expanding ZOE Network. This work continues (even through a global pandemic) and they are actively involved in discipling women and men into God’s mission.
