The members of the leadership team guide ICF to be a place where people encounter God and then bless others.
Jerry and Lois joined ICF as our pastor-couple in 2018. They have a passion for prayer and long to see more people come to know and love Jesus. They have lived this passion out on three continents. Their first experience working together internationally was in the early 90s in rural East Africa where they served at a hospital and orphanage project. There they combined Lois’s nursing and administration skills with Jerry’s theological training and aptitude for repairing things. In 1997, they moved with their young son to South East Asia, where they lived and worked for over 12 years. As an expression of Christ’s love, they came to Dakar to help pastor people of all walks of life, through our church.
Andrew came to Dakar to be a full-time stay at home father when his wife’s job moved them to Senegal from their home country of Uganda. He became a follower of Christ at a young age and is passionate about singing and music. He plays the guitar and drums – and tennis too.

Shadrach is from Southern USA, and while growing up as a PK, he moved quite a lot with his family. He and Melissa and their 4 children have lived in Africa 10 years, and in Dakar since January 2019. They work and serve in a community development role that takes them all over Africa.
Jeana is a teacher and mom. After teaching kindergarten for five years in the U.S., she and her husband moved to Africa to work with a relief and development organization. She loves playing games and taking pictures.

We are praying for the Lord to nudge someone to take on this important ministry role soon!
