Ward, Verne and Rahel - South Africa

We are a cross cultural couple and both of us grew up as missionary kids (MKs) in Papua New Guinea and South Africa respectively. LuVerne serves on the Africa Region as Communications Coordinator (RCC) and Rachel (grade 6-12 teacher) helps write curriculum for Rendezvous and Rendezvous PLUS, which are training events for Nazarene MKs. The Rendezvous events focus on preparing and equipping MKs for their transition from the mission field and through their transition back to their passport country. 

LuVerne received his bachelor degree in mass communications and completed his masters in communications management. As RCC he leads the communications team and together they produce materials such as radio and TV programs, websites, short films, printed materials, presentations and offers media support for regional events across Africa. LuVerne also works with field leaders and supports them through communications with their strategy. 

As a family we love to explore new places and worship with believers all across the World. We stand in awe at the diversity of cultures that testify to God's greatness and creativity. Our adventure continues as we live cross culturally with our four boys (Timeon 6, Raimon 4, Samouel 2, Hannes 1) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
