Our dream is to see Christ known, loved & worshipped among the unreached of the world
John is the WEC UK Missions Director. He is passionate about Christ, his Church and his Kingdom, and the challenge of reaching unreached peoples at home and overseas. He currently lives in Coventry and works out of the WEC UK headquarters there. He is involved in many aspects of ministry, from preaching, teaching and training to mission leadership, strategic thinking, team building and mobilising. John travels extensively, visiting WEC teams within the UK and further afield. He is married to Pauline and they have four beautiful children. John enjoys reading, walking the dog, playing guitar, and photography (when he has the time).
Pauline is wife to John, mum to four children, UK Director of WEC International and a follower of Jesus. She is a trained teacher and served the missionary families in West Africa for seven years as a teacher at WEC's school in Senegal. Pauline returned to the UK with her family in 2005, first of all to take up the role of WEC’s regional coordinator for the southwest and then, in 2007, to become UK Director. Pauline is also the EFL coordinator for the international volunteers helping to run WEC UK’s headquarters, and is currently studying for her TESOL diploma. In her spare time she loves to paint, read, play squash or just hang out at home with the family.
UK Deputy Director and Head of Ministries
Paul is motivated by the transformation knowing Jesus brings to each of us as individuals, families, organisations and communities. He currently lives in Coventry in the WEC UK HQ, but is still more at home in Africa where he has spent over half of his life. Mission for Paul is about God fulfilling his plan in us as well as in those he calls us to reach. It’s about crossing frontiers, from faith to non-faith and involves speaking about the gospel of Jesus, living in a kingdom way and just being in the presence of God and others. Paul is married to Ruth and has three children. He enjoys family movie nights, good food, reading, exercise, DIY and talking about life, theology and organisational leadership.
UK Deputy Director and Head of Finance
I love being able to use my gifts to release others to be on the front line in mission.
Head of Mobilisation
I am Bawa Leo, a disciple of Christ. I am committed to facilitating church growth through multi-cultural disciple-making, leadership empowerment and strategic thinking. I am passionate about inspiring young people for Kingdom living, and about enabling the Church to do mission in a way that serves the nations which most need support – united, we are stronger and do better for Christ’s Kingdom. I am married to Afiniki (Afy) and we are blessed with two children, Emmanuel and Grace. I enjoy reading, writing, multi-media visualising and mentoring relationships.
