Elim Missions Office

Iain

Iain Hesketh

International Missions Director

I joined the Elim Missions team as IMD in September 2018, after leading Encounter Church (Elim) in Birmingham for a number of years. I’m captivated by the mission of God and passionate about helping the people engage in His great rescue plan! I’m married to Rachel and we have two young daughters. Life is full but we’re loving the adventure of following Jesus together!

Julie

Julie Cook

Office Manager & PA to International Missions Director

I joined the Elim Missions team in May 2013. In my role I oversee the running of the office, and provide admin support to Iain Hesketh and the Elim Missions staff. I really value the commitment of the Elim Missions staff who provide great administrative support to our missionaries and I also love to connect with our missionaries, who are living and working overseas, seeing their communities transformed by the love of God.

John

John Martin

Project Coordinator

After graduating uni with a degree in Art and Design I really didn’t give missions a second thought. My first job out of uni changed all of that. Now, so many years later I am still working for the same organisation but my one-day a week designer job has changed somewhat to working part-time developing church partnership. I feel I am fairly well placed to help churches get involved in Missions as I am also the Pastor of Elim's church in Stratford-upon-Avon, Oasis Christian Centre. And if that wasn't enough my wife Cara and I, have a daughter, Isabella and a son, Reuben. Life is pretty busy but we love it!

Dorota Niznik-Kniga

Finance Administrator


I joined the Elim Missions Team in September 2018 as a Finance Officer.  I have always been passionate about numbers and after graduating uni with a degree in Finance I decided to leave Poland and move permanently to the UK. My journey with Elim HQ started in 2015 when I joined Finance Department. Now, 3 years later I am still working for the same organisation and I feel particularly blessed to be part of a team that seizes opportunities to serve the living God in His fast-changing world.

Danielle

Danielle Face

Admin Assistant

Previously I spent several years as a missionary working in Africa and Asia, training other missionaries to serve unreached people groups.
I returned to the UK in 2013 to complete a Theology degree before joining Elim Missions in June 2017. I now have the joy of running the Missionary Apprentice Programme (MAP), for 16-25 year olds, and organising student mission teams.
I love that my role also involves helping with odd jobs in the office alongside the wonderful Elim Missions team, so I have the privilege of serving missionaries who are currently spreading the gospel across the globe. What an honour it is to share the good news and bring hope!

Mandy

Mandy Campbell

Teams and Applications Co-ordinator

I joined the Elim Missions Team in October 2007.  One of my roles is that of  Teams and Applications Co-ordinator. Anyone who has an interest in doing a volunteer mission placement overseas through Elim Missions can contact me, and I will organise a suitable placement for them.  I also process the applications for those who have completed our Missionary Academy and are looking to long term missionary service.   My other role here is to co-ordinate our Shop With Integrity project.  This involves buying goods made by local artisans in the developing world and selling them through our churches and ministries here in the UK.  The project has ethical trade at its heart.  I am passionate about missions and consider it a privilege to work with such a great team.

Graphic Design and Creative Media

Having returned to the UK in June 2018 from being an Elim missionary in Swaziland for 7 years, I was overjoyed to have the opportunity to serve Elim Missions in graphic design and social media.  I love working in creative media especially for a cause so close to my heart.

My husband and I have 3 children and we currently lead the Elim Church in Barking, Greater London. I’m in awe of the way God takes us each on an adventure through life; wherever in the world that is!

Roy Johnston

Irish Missions Director

I am the newest member of the Missions Team but not the youngest. I have recently been appointed Irish Missions Director, after serving as a local pastor in six Elim churches in Ireland over a 28 years period. I have been on a number of Missions Trips and have always had a heart for International Missions and a heart to help serve Missionaries on the foreign field. I am so excited about what the Lord will accomplish through the team as we look to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ.
