At Harbourside Presbyterian Church we are privileged to be able to support a number of missionaries in very different parts of the world:
Granville and Ibolya Pillar
Granville serves as Global Scholars European Regional Representative, and lectures in universities in Hungary, Romania and Ukraine; Ibolya is a Special Ed. teacher and schools consultant. They are involved in ministering to both students and staff in their respective educational contexts, seeking to share Christ through their teaching, mentoring, hospitality and practical help.
John and Kay Rowse
John goes to East Africa twice each year for three months at a time. Kay and Asha are based back here in Australia. John’s main focus is the widespread ignorance of the gospel among East African pastors, including Presbyterians. He also works with police in a crime-prevention initiative to confront the culture of witch-hunting.
Jo lives in a small coastal city in the Middle East. She works at a community centre, teaching English and facilitating community in a small development business. She also leads a team of people who are learning language and culture with a view to serving in the region.
Anna’s ministry for 2018 is to mentor potential Malagasy missionaries through mission studies and English as she prepares to leave Madagascar in 2019. She is also responsible for member care of the AIM missionaries in Madagascar.
Jeff and Jo Shepley
Jeff and Jo have been serving in a remote village in Papua New Guinea, where they have shared the Truth and are discipling those who have responded.
