OUR MISSIONARIES

Paul and Simone Weaver - Missionaries for King of Kings

PAUL & SIMONE WEAVER

We have worked in Youth With A Mission for 20 years: in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Jeffrey’s Bay and Cape Town, South Africa.

We have been involved in leading Discipleship Training Schools focused on preparing young adults to effectively minister cross-culturally. Simone has just completed her Masters in Christian Formation and Discipleship, while Paul has a Theology Degree. Presently, we are staffing the 2016 Master’s in Christian Formation and Discipleship Degree based in Cape Town and working alongside the International DTS Centre in redesigning Curriculum.

We have four children – Daniel (11), Emma (9), Meike (7) and Benjamin (6).

Valerie Gail King of Kings

VALERIE-GAIL MARKOWSKI

I serve at Beautiful Gate South Africa located in Philippi. I am in my 13th year and wear two hats. One ‘hat’ is coordinating our Sponsor a Child program-which entails visiting vulnerable children in their dwellings and reporting back to people/organizations that are part of our Sponsor a Child family. The other ‘hat’ is overseeing Beautiful Gates Charity Shop. Gathering donations, sorting, pricing and selling items to local families. Items are priced low so families can care for themselves or resell to earn an income. We believe in helping families while keeping their dignity in tact.

Jo Sharples King of Kings

JO SHARPLES

I originally hail from the UK but have been in Cape town for the last 17 years and this is now home. My work has been in different areas of ministry during that time, including 9 years with Scripture Union and 2 years in Malawi.

I enjoy studying and am currently doing a Masters in Practical Theology with Cape Town Baptist Seminary. I love seeing people come to faith and grow in their walk with the Lord. My main areas of ministry are currently evangelism, pastoral care and prayer ministry.

Willem and Edith coordinate Discipling Nations. Our vision is to mobilize and equip local churches in Africa to make disciples of all nations. Our mission is to provide a dynamic, accessible, affordable and academically attainable short training programme to equip God’s people for effective cross-cultural mission, in the context of the local church. Our passion is for local churches to have God’s heart for the least reach peoples, both near and far. Willem is also pastor of Kalk Bay Community Church and with Edith coordinate the outreach in Kalk Bay: harbour ministry, Joy Club, ministry to the homeless and the fisherman’s village.

ROB & JACKIE WALKER

17 years ago I graduated from Bible College, still wanting to be a Civil Engineer, but God’s Word and a passion to share it had gripped me more than my desire for engineering. I didn’t however know what to do with that passion as I really didn’t feel called to be a pastor of a local church. Thankfully God put a few wise and godly people around me who suggested I should try doing student ministry with Dr. Roger Palmer at UCT and I guess the rest is history. For 4 years I poured my life into student ministry and, looking back, I got to live a wonderfully simple and uncluttered life in the midst of a life changing community at the UCT Student Y. I got to teach and live the Christian life in community day in and day out. What a privilege.
