South Africa

Mark & Debbie Christopher

Mark Christopher first became interested in South Africa when he met a young South African lassie, who worked in the library of the Bible College he attended. They were married in her home church in Newcastle, South Africa in 1987. After getting married they ended up working in Debbie’s home church for some sixteen months. Upon returning to the states in late 1988 they knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that God wanted them to return to South Africa.

After graduating from The Master’s Seminary in May 1994 they hastily raised the support they would need to return to the land they love so much! Mark’s ministry is twofold: Mark has worked as a church planter and is now teaching at the Evangelical Bible College and preaching at the Everglen Baptist Church while still helping to develop leadership at the Living Hope Bible Church that he helped to plant. He has recently had several opportunities to teach on the radio, as well as write on key issues from a biblical perspective.
