My name is Matt George, Executive Director of European Christian Mission (ECM) in Australia since January 2017. Before that, my wife and I were missionaries to Portugal from 2004-16, serving in various ministries including being on staff at a Bible College in Lisbon (Portuguese Bible Institute), being part of a church planting team and particularly for the last six years (2011-16), working in university student ministry in Coimbra.
I have two children, a daughter, Anabella aged 11 and a son, Calvin, 6, who we were able to adopt through Bulgaria as part of EU cooperation.
I would be open to speak online in a range of church, small group, university or Bible College settings. I have lots of experience as a Bible expositor with strong application to global mission. I have of course prepared numerous presentations about my specific ministry but I can also speak on a number of missions related topics. You might be interested in a seminar on Europe as a mission field in the present crisis - its needs, challenges and how ECM is engaged in reaching Europeans.
My name is Sam Boog, I have been working in Media and Promotions for European Christian Mission (ECM) for the last couple of years. I became a Christian when I was a teenager and have since grown in my love for the Lord Jesus and the need to share the good news throughout the world. I have a background in broadcast journalism and worked for several years at the ABC. I have also worked in ministry, using my love for the media to encourage and disciple media workers in Sydney. I have a particular passion for Europe and am keenly aware of the needs there and the resources we have here. I would be available to present on-line about this topic if interested and the videos on our website are available too.
I love reading, running and looking after my four girls! My husband and I currently reside in Dubbo, western NSW.
My name is Michael Walsh. I’m the Missions Engagement Intern with ECM. I’ve grown up in a ministry-based mission-oriented home as an MK (missionary kid) and PK (pastor’s kid) and I’ve turned out OK! I love watching movies and using them to start conversations about Jesus and I’m an avid LEGO builder.
I first visited Europe when I was 14, and have visited numerous times since to learn more and become better mobilised for long-term cross-cultural ministry and missions engagement.
I would love to speak at your youth group, Bible study, young adult gatherings, youth camp, church weekend away etc. I’ve spoken in churches, bible colleges, conferences, events and on camps with particularly focuses on missions in Europe, the Body of Christ in missions and young peoples pathways into serving in mission. I’d love to speak on any of these issues and others relating to Europe, mission, and loving Jesus as a young person.
