Missionary Personnel Services in the Africa Regional Office:
David & Jodi Cooper are the Mission Personnel Coordinators, and are responsible for the care and logistical support for missionaries serving in Africa. This includes the development and implementation of a sending system for Africans who are called to cross-cultural ministry, acting as a liaison to the Global Ministry Center (GMC) in Lenexa, Kansas, USA, giving support to all matters related to missionary service.
David also coordinates Work & Witness and Partnership ministries at the regional level. He works with the various field and country coordinators as they work to have a strategic vision for the W&W teams and short-term volunteers that come to assist. It is also the goal of the Africa Region to create partnerships for every field with other caring Nazarenes that will help in the realization of our churches reaching the lost for Christ.
