Want to hear about how the Bible is changing lives around the world? We have a team of dedicated Church Engagement Managers who would love to provide a video talk or join your online service to inspire you and let you know how you can join us in our mission. You can invite a speaker to your church at a Sunday morning service or a mid-week event.
Staff are introduced below. Our trained volunteers may be available to visit your church in future to share our exciting mission and invite your congregation to get involved.
