John and Laura became members of CHPC while attending the University of Cincinnati in the 1970s. They were commissioned as Ambassadors for Christ by CHPC in 1979. Since then, they have been helping people be reconciled to God and to other people as a foundation of discipleship. They lived in the Middle East for 26 years and have been in Europe since 2011.
Based in Spain, they train, coach, and consult for international ministries and national believers around the world. They specialize in leadership development and biblical conflict resolution, which are two crucial and universal needs among Christians today. They travel internationally for in-person trainings and provide internet-based resources and consulting. John is the founder of PeacePursuit.org and the author of The Peace Pursuit Handbook.
A LONG OBEDIENCE IN THE SAME DIRECTION
CHPC member Chris Goodman was a music teacher in Cincinnati when God called her to be part of a Christian music group touring Europe. In 1987, she moved overseas with the Presbyterian Frontier Fellowship and later the Presbyterian Church (USA). After she was ordained, in 1995, her husband, Rev. Greg Callison, joined her as mission mobilizers with the Frontier Fellowship. Together they shared a love for the Kurds people in Berlin and later in the Kurdish homeland. Offered an early retirement, they have joined "The Antioch Partners" (TAP). The Callisons plan to keep building a team that can continue loving Kurds for Christ long after their years of service are done.
Derrick and Rae are serving the Lord Jesus in Kampala, Uganda. Rae is American (from New Orleans) and Derrick is Ugandan. They met while they were both in Seminary in Kenya.
They seek to glorify God by planting gospel-centered and disciple-making churches, and by equipping gospel workers in a context where false versions of the gospel are teeming. They’re currently working with a team in the planting of Cross Fellowship Church in Kampala. Their ministry involves proclaiming Christ to the lost, training future Christian leaders, and serving the growing refugee community in Kampala.
Gabriel and Sharleen serve with SIM International in Nairobi, Kenya. They teach English (Kenya's language of business and education) to refugees living in their city. Most of their students come from a large East African ethnic group with virtually no access to the Gospel. Sharleen's Baking Club and Gabriel's English Club creatively engage students in deeper ways that build relationships, and they reach out to neighbors through friendship evangelism.
Please join them in praying that God will continue to open opportunities for spiritual conversations with students, and students' hearts to the Good News of Jesus.
