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 Passmore

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.

Tim Cobham

Tim Cobham

Senior Missions Assistant

I first became passionate about missions in my late teens when I started leading teams of young people on short-term mission to UK & European churches. On one of these teams to Spain I was impacted incredibly and forever changed.

In 2006 I sold my IT company and as a family we set off for Bible College and then onto Spain as missionaries. I am married to Helen, and have two daughters who are still fluent Spanish speakers as a result of being in a state school over there.

Our return back to the UK was surprising at the time, but God was still leading and my excitement for being involved in mission and supporting missionaries has never waned. Whilst as Associate Pastor at Huddersfield Elim for the last 9 ½ years I have also been a regional mission’s representative and part of the Himalayan Working Group.

I am so thrilled to have my time released to be working with Elim Missions, supporting God’s mission being worked out in so many different places and contexts.

Veronika Farkasova

Finance Officer

After working for Elim Headquarters, as a part of the Finance Department, for over 6 years I joined the Elim Missions team in June 2019. Through my time in Elim Finance Department, I have gained the necessary knowledge and experience to take the role of Finance Officer for Elim Missions. I have always had a soft spot for the missionary work and accounting and I feel that God has helped me and guided me to Elim Missions for this particular reason. I have been part of the team for a few months already and have seen the amazing work Elim Missions are doing around the world through the Elim Missionaries and our Elim Global Partners.

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!

Elspeth

Elspeth Davidson

Finance Assistant

I joined the Elim Missions team in Feb 2017 as a part-time Finance Assistant…and I am still here! It is a real privilege to be a part of this team and humbling to see first-hand the generosity of God’s people in supporting the wider church family abroad.

Having grown up on the mission field in a very troubled DR Congo, I know how critical this support is. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to encourage and enable others to serve God where He has called them.

John

John Martin

Church Partnership Co-ordinator

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!

Roy

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.
