Hannah Jackson

Sent from St Nicholas’ Church, Sevenoaks

Hannah is going to join a TIMO team working among the unreached Swahili and Wangindo peoples of Likawage, southeast Tanzania.

Hannah trained as a teacher and taught Geography in the UK for a number of years before spending a year on AIM’s short term programme in Korr, northern Kenya.

Since then, she has worked with Oak Hall Expeditions planning Christian holidays and conferences, and Hannah now serves with St Nicholas church, Sevenoaks as a ministry trainee. This role enables her to continue studying by attending the Proclamation Trust’s Cornhill Training Course.  

TIMO (Training in Ministry Outreach) is a hands on missionary training programme designed to equip men and women for church planting among unreached people groups, providing practical hands on training while engaging in real, transformational ministry. 

Hannah will be joining a small multinational team of new missionaries serving under experienced Tanzanian team leaders and working with the African Inland Church of Tanzania (AICT). The team will learn the local language (Kiswahili) and gain a deep understanding of the culture of their host community as they build relationships and share Christ among their new neighbours and friends. 

Hannah is excited to continue learning as the team work through TIMO’s specialised curriculum. The kinds of ministry she might end up being involved with may include teaching (in high school or teaching English in the community), children’s work, Bible storying, or reading the Bible with people. 

Could you partner with Hannah in this work?
