Geoff Donaldson

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!

Latest Prayer News

Give thanks that Nana Koomson began working for AIM last week. She will be helping us raise support for the Ministry of the Mission fund, which is used for our mobilising work and church engagement activity. Please pray for her as she learns more about her role and AIM and gets to know the rest of the UK office team over the coming weeks. 

Praise God that Geoff Donaldson has raised enough support to have been able to work for AIM two days per week since November. Please continue to pray that God will provide the rest of the funds needed for him to increase his working days. Please also pray for Geoff as he adapts to the role of Mission Advisor and seeks to develop AIM’s work in Ireland.

Thank you for your prayers for a Fundraising Officer. We are pleased to say we have appointed a candidate and they will be beginning work next week. Please pray for the settling in process, and that we would be able to orientate our new member of staff well, particularly considering the Covid-19 restrictions.  

Please pray for additional financial support for the work of AIM through December. So far we’ve not received the donation levels that we’d hoped for to maintain our mobilisation and member care work. Please pray for churches and individuals to come forward and support us. Pray too for good connections and opportunities to speak in churches throughout 2022. 

Tomorrow we are interviewing candidates for the fundraising officer position. Pray for the candidates as they prepare today, that they would know God’s peace as they look for a new role. Pray too that our interview panel would listen well and be able to discern God’s wisdom and leading in decision making.

The Psalmist wrote ‘Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him’ (Psalm 34:8). As Peter Root, AIM Europe’s Personnel Director, reflects how God was at work over his 13 year period in Mozambique (1993 – 2006), he shares, “I can only say, ‘the Lord is good’”.
