Sent from Hope Church, Hillsborough

Geoff has a background in pastoral ministry, Bible College teaching and church leadership development work in Zimbabwe. The experience of serving in Africa embedded in him the vision for developing networks and partnership in mission.

In his role as Mission Advisor in Ireland, Geoff seeks to develop relationships with churches and church leaders, sharing the vision of how they can be part of seeing Christ-centred churches established among the 1000 unreached people groups of Africa.

The picture of world mission is evolving and through his work Geoff helps people understand the biblical story of mission and how individuals and churches can play a role in the unfolding picture of gospel work across Africa and among African diaspora. Geoff speaks at Sunday services and small groups, has one to one discussions with church leaders and potential AIM candidates, meets with mission groups and partners in mission mobilisation opportunities with other agencies.

Geoff and his wife Rosaliene are based in Lisburn and they have three children. Rosaliene works as a Social Prescriber and continues to offer support to disability groups that she helped to establish in Zimbabwe. They enjoy drinking coffee and are open for invitations to chat about mission over a cuppa!
