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 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.

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!

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.

Danielle

Danielle Face

UK Missions Training Co-ordinator

Previously I spent several years as a missionary working in Africa and Asia, training other missionaries to serve unreached people groups.
I returned to the UK in 2013 to complete a Theology degree before joining Elim Missions in June 2017. I now have the joy of running the Missionary Apprentice Programme (MAP), for 16-25 year olds, and organising student mission teams.
I love that my role also involves helping with odd jobs in the office alongside the wonderful Elim Missions team, so I have the privilege of serving missionaries who are currently spreading the gospel across the globe. What an honour it is to share the good news and bring hope!

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.

Joanne Cheshire

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!

Emma Steel

Overseas Teams Administrator and Office Admin Assistant

I joined Elim Missions at the end of 2019. My position is to provide admin support to the very busy Missions office. I am a member of The Malvern Hills Church, which is near to the Elim International Centre. I joined my church after attending their life changing ALPHA course. I had been looking for a suitable vacancy at Elim for a number of years but nothing presented itself. In 2019 Robin & Janet Fenner, who are Elim missionaries, visited my home church, along with Iain Hesketh and Danielle Face from Elim Missions. I felt a huge connection to them and what they were doing. Their stories of the missions work were amazing and right then and there, I knew that I wanted to work for Elim Missions one day. By God’s Grace a vacancy became available which I prayed on and spoke to my Pastor about, to see if he thought I should apply. After getting a resounding ‘YES’, I immediately applied and to my surprise was offered the job. I love working here and truly look forward to coming in every day and doing whatever I can to serve this amazing team. I am extremely excited about the future of Elim Missions and helping it to move forward. I have only been here a short time but can already see the wonderful work of Elim Missions.

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.

Chris McCabe

Projects & Elim Global Administrator

I joined the Elim Missions team in January 2020, after serving with the Finance Department at Elim International Centre for 3 years. Before starting at Elim, I was a pilot and have seen a lot of the world, particularly in West Africa. Interacting with people from different cultures and background was a real pleasure and honour for me. I have a passion for compliance, procedures and good stewardship, so that missionaries and churches alike can be fully resourced in their ultimate calling; to share God’s love with everyone!

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.
