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.
