Victor serves as Coordinator of Mission Capacity Building (mainly for Africa and Latin America, some for Asia). This ministry involves strengthening leadership, community development, and missionary sending capacity among our global partner conferences. This role includes resourcing existing and emerging leaders in 12 sister conferences in as many ways as possible, both in-country and from the office.
Our journey: I grew up in Abbotsford, but moved south to Fresno to study. After meeting and marrying my wife Marty, we spent the next 25 years serving in Brazil as missionaries. Our three girls were born and raised in Brazil, and to continue the international flavour in our family, our second daughter married a fine gentleman from Holland. I have been with MB Mission since 1982 and feel blessed to be part of such a great international family and team. In my current role, I daily get to connect with diverse people from diverse countries in diverse languages – never a dull moment! What a joy to live out my ministry motto: For His glory among the nations!
