Bill & Shirley Pipke

Location: Africa
Ministry Focus: Bill and Shirley are global workers based out of Canada. They believe in equipping the local Canadian church to partner with leaders and church planters at home and around the world.  (Currently working in Cuba, Ukraine, Indonesia, Africa and China)

Brent & Carina Cantelon

Location: Worldwide
Ministry Focus: For a number of years Carina and I have felt a stirring in our hearts. It is a sense of calling to a task we were willing to accept and yet uncertain as to how it would come about and when it would be asked of us. This burden is defined by an inescapable passion for evangelism and revival in our beloved Canada, as well as a desire to minister, strengthen and pour into global missions leaders and works. 

Dan & Mardell MacTavish

Location: Romania, Eurasia
Ministry Focus: Dan and Mardell are associate consulting pastors of the Bucharest International Church. This multi-cultural church community offers a relevant dynamic for Romania’s current generation and provides a setting for evangelism, discipleship and leadership development, both locally and nationally. Dan and Mardell bring awareness to the very real problem of human trafficking in Romania, bringing encouragement to Iana Matei and her son, Stefan, of Reaching Out Romania, in their efforts to bring an end to human trafficking, to provide shelter and restoration to the young victims, and to create financial sustainability. In Spain, Dan and Mardell come alongside the pastors and national leaders of the Salem group of churches in the development of their ministries. 

Deborah Sirjoosingh

Location: Kenya
Ministry History: God’s call on Deborah’s life remains unchanged as she continues to minister among the Turkana people in Loima Location, North Western Kenyan. Her mission and vision are mandated in Mark 16:15-20 and Matthew 25:35-40. The distance between Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, to Eldoret, to Namoruputh in Loima, remains unchanged. However, instead of two or three days by road, there are commercial flights to Lodwar. The road trip between Lodwar to Namoruputh remains adventurous and exciting with rustic, rugged terrain and splendid desert beauty displaying God’s awesome creation and glory. The scorching temperatures remain the same.  

Don & Marie-José Mann

Location: Montreal, Canada
Ministry Focus: After living for ten years on African soil, Don and MJ are now Canadian based global workers living in Montreal, Canada. Don has been reappointed to a new position with the GlobalEd Institute as a Leadership Development Specialist and Director of the Quest Leadership Program. As the Director of the Quest Leadership Program, Don uses his 40 years of pastoral and missions experience to provide direction for the development and delivery of equipping programs and services that will serve national churches, national missional workers, untrained pastors, students and alumni of bible colleges in their pursuit of character and spiritual development.  Chitenge Creations is a sewing initiative created by Marie-José. There are presently two schools, one in Pretoria, South Africa, and the other in Pretoria's Mamelodi Township, where up to 90% of the women are unemployed. 

C. & S.

Location: Asia
Ministry Focus: We are church planters in a booming Southeast Asian city. Our current church was born with a vision to see lives completely transformed. The people of our city are mostly unreached, and many are economically disadvantaged. Even though most people in this region have never heard the gospel before, the church has grown to serve more than 1,000 members. We have seen countless numbers of people give their lives to Jesus, entire communities touched, and many new disciples grow into leaders.

The Holy Spirit is moving in a special way here, and we believe that the church will impact the city for generations to come.

Our approach to the unreached and vulnerable is to present a holistic gospel that goes beyond the church walls! The church has established a centre that provides for people in need and serves the community with outreach programs. We also plant churches in outlying regions, and we reach people through a fruitful and far-reaching television and internet evangelism program. In addition, the church has become a focal point for training leaders for church planting in the region.

Kathy Mizen

Location: Honduras, Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Kathy is excited to be working as the Director of Schools of Hope. She oversees ChildCARE Plus sponsorships, ERDO Nutrition Program and Water Projects, as well as other administrative duties. Schools of Hope ministers through evangelism within the public school system of Honduras to over 8,500 children, sharing the hope of Jesus Christ. 

Linda Veldhuizen

Location: The Philippines
Ministry Focus: Linda is the Director of Noah's Ark Ministries, located in Banaue, Ifugao, Philippines. She has been in the Philippines for the past 30 years and has an adopted son and daughter. 

Mark & Kim Steinfield

Location: Spain
Ministry Focus: Mark is partnering with  Salem leadership to establish a Bible School in Madrid and Kim is engaged with family ministries in the church. In addition to their ministry in Spain, Mark and Kim both serve on the Eurasia Region’s lead team. Mark overseas education initiatives in the region and Kim provides member care  to the region's global workers. They have three energetic children: Alyssa, Madeleine, and Caleb. 

Mark & Val Hazzard

Location: Latin America and the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: Mark has recently been appointed as the Regional Director for the Latin America/Caribbean Region. Mark and Val count it an honour to serve the global workers in this region, to connect with national partners, and to serve the PAOC’s global vision to reach, plant, equip and care. We presently have global workers in 15 countries and plan to expand our missions reach wherever needed. 

Wayne & Ann Hilsden

Location: Israel
Ministry Focus: Originally from Canada, Wayne and Ann arrived in Israel in 1983 to help Jim and Kathy Cantelon establish King of Kings Assembly in Jerusalem. A few years later, Jim and Kathy followed the Lord to new adventures and Wayne became the senior pastor. Their love for Israel, worship and building up others in ministry in the land is evident in all they do.

Nelly Latchman

Location: University of Windsor, Windsor, ON
Ministry Focus:  Nelly is a Mission Canada Campus Worker at the University of Windsor. Her heart is for young adults entering into the world of post-secondary education. Nelly grew up in the church and when called to ministry, she wanted to ensure that her calling was real and would be one that would last.  She wanted something “different" and asked God to give her a burden for something she hadn't noticed before and to take her outside of the walls of the church. As Nelly was getting closer to going off to university at Tyndale in Toronto to pursue her call without having all of the details, God opened her eyes and broke her heart for those who were her peers. She began noticing the drastic drift of her friends from church who had not only wandered away from faith but made life changing decisions during the transition between high school and post-secondary. This burdened her heart and straightened the focus of her call.

Global Worker:  Restricted Access Nation (RAN), Asia.

Although we are still free to share the gospel in many parts of the world, there are places where spreading the gospel is illegal.  There still remains close to 7,000 people groups in the world with less than 2% of evangelical Christians.  We are supporting RAN Global Workers.
