Scott and Heather
Scott and Heather are making disciples and planting churches among the unreached people groups of Southeast Asia. They believe God has called them to use “Business as Mission” as an avenue of becoming a real part of the city in order to develop natural relationships that lead to disciple making and church planting. They also desire to participate in the rehabilitation and discipleship of women and girls rescued from the sex trade.
James has been a Law Professor at Handong International Law School (HILS) since 2006. He teaches US law in English to international students, many of whom desire to practice law in the areas of human rights and religious freedoms in places where the church is threatened. HILS is forthrightly Christian and teaches law from a Biblical Worldview. Many developing countries are discovering that their laws are inadequate to meet the needs of their people, but they lack the knowledge and insight to correct the problems. HILS seeks to equip students to address these kinds of needs.
