Gerry Keens-Douglas is the Grenadian President for our board of directors. Gerry
and his wife are also local pastors and the current head of the Evangelical Churches of
the West Indies in Grenada-- as well as the denomination's Assistant Superintendent for
whole of the Caribbean. He's the longest serving board member for Youth With A Mission
Grenada (YWAM) and is the former National Director of Youth For Christ Grenada.
Alvin Campbell is a local pastor with a HUGE heart for missions
and evangelism. He oversees a discipleship ministry in the secondary
schools- as well as many programs focused on reaching the kids in
the village. Besides being a great friend, he often plays the role of
our cultural liaison and "all things Grenada" expert.
Justin and Erica Zauflik are the Resident Directors of Grenada 24-7, overseeing
all ministries on the island-- along with being the U.S. President for our board of
directors. Before God called them to Grenada, they'd been in ministry for over a decade.
What started as a weekly bible study for college students grew into an international
ministry reaching nations in southeast Asia, Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.
|One of the things God's taught us through the years is not to center what we do
around one personality or activity. Because of this, He has opened doors for us and
has allowed us to see Him revealed in ways we never would have thought imaginable.
We love Charlie and Sally Carpenter!!
We have the privilege of continuing the work they
first began in Grenada in 1987. Over the years,
they've hosted countless short term missionaries
and have seen literally thousands come to Christ.
|Leadership and Advisory Board
Bo Weaver has been supporting and pastoring missions in Grenada for close to 30 years. In
2006, Bo sensed God leading him to start a new church, The Bridge Community Church of
Northern Kentucky. What started with just a handful of people grew into a church of over
800 in just a few short years. Along with pastoring a local church, he has ministered
extensively in Europe, India, the Philippines, and of course Grenada. Bo was actually Charlie and
Sally's pastor when they first came to the island and provided much of the support they needed.
Eliazar Akuchie was born and raised in Mbieri, Nigeria. Since 1996 he has been
mentoring local Grenadian pastors and organizing yearly mission trips to the island.
Currently living in the United States, Eliazar works for the Richland County (Ohio)
Juvenile Court system, in turn co-founding the Richland Community Prayer Network and
Family Coalition to mobilize local churches to work together to combat the issues that
plague their community.
Chris Garner is key to our summer camp ministry and short term mission trips. After a
career in aircraft manufacturing, he has spent the last 25+ years traveling the world
supporting overseas missions. Chris has mastered the art of 'slight of hand' (card tricks,
optical illusions) and uses its draw and wonder as a unique way to present the Gospel in
places with religious restrictions or language barriers.
Chuck Payne is Grenada 24-7's secretary for the board of directors. He is also currently
the Global Ministry Pastor at The Bridge Community Church as well as being an executive in
the financial services industry. Chuck brings a wealth of ministry and business experience as
he supports and counsels missionaries serving around the globe.
|As an organization, we believe that we can only fulfill the Great Commission if we respect and minister as
a diverse body of Christ. Along with being great friends, the following men feel God has called them to
help our organization fulfill our calling. These are the men that we look to for counsel, accountability,
encouragement and pastoring. In essence, they are our "Council of Pastors".
|God has called us to change the world for His Kingdom. He's given us the power
and authority to fulfill this calling. But to be His 'world-changers' we need to live
solely for that purpose and realize that only what's done for Christ will last.
