I am involved in “helping emerging mission organisations and churches envision and engage more effectively in mission, though conversations that bring about change”.
For over 25 years I have worked in CMS as a Mission Partner in Pakistan and then as Regional Director. I have seen many changes in the Mission World, particularly the shift to the Global South (Africa, Asia, Latin America) as a Mission Force and the North as a Mission Field, particularly Europe, the new ‘Dark Continent’. A lot of my role involved capacity building partner organisations, acting as an internal consultant.
During this time, I was also able to complete a Masters in Organisational Management and Consultancy. My last role in CMS comprised facilitating the setting up of a separate organisation, AsiaCMS under local leadership and governance. This involved me working myself out of a job and also presented the opportunity to reposition myself.
The basic vision is to continue to use the experience and Network I have gained over the years
I want to continue to engage with the network I have built up over many years, but in a different capacity. I am now self employed with a portfolio of roles. I am currently working as a consultant with a number of organisations:
Global Teams ‘the heart of Christ in the skin of every culture’ www.global-teams.net a US based mission organisation, involved in coming alongside ‘Kingdom movements’ particularly among Muslims. I am operating as a Partnership Facilitator.
Mahabba UK ‘I sincerely love all Muslims’ www.mahabbanetwork.com I have joined the Shared Leadership Team to help take this amazing initiative forward nationally & help facilitate groups in the South of England, mobilising ordinary Christians in Britain to reach out to their Muslim neighbours.
Faith2Share is promoting paraklesis through the Faith2Share network of mission agencies www.faith2share.net and are holding them to account for the consultancy work we do. F2S also encourages emerging mission movements in the Global South
