Gary's passion for the plight of oppressed and marginalized Christians worldwide was first ignited during an investigative and life-changing missionary tour through a restricted nation. Since then, he has encouraged social justice, both as a mandate of faith and as an expression of Christian maturity. For more than thirty years, Gary has been involved in full-time ministry with an emphasis on the revitalization of Christian communities and the establishment of systems for assimilation and discipleship. Gary studied education and theology and has used that training to structure his passion for helping people stand firm in their faith and embrace a missional lifestyle. Gary and his wife Ruth reside in Mississauga, Ontario and are the proud parents of two adult children.
Andrew’s passion for the Persecuted Church was ignited by reading Brother Andrew’s book, God’s Smuggler, while he was in middle school. That passion has steadily grown over the years and has been a constant theme in his ministry to our younger generation. Andrew has strong public speaking skills and welcomes the opportunity to inspire people of all ages to understand and engage with our Persecuted Church family. Andrew has been involved in youth ministry for more than 15 years with the previous 6 years as a youth pastor.
Paul has encouraged Christians in restricted countries as diverse as Cuba. Tibet. China, Mongolia, Africa. Latin America, the former USSR, South and South East Asia and the Middle East. He has authored several books, including "Escape from North Korea".
