Christian Education Consultant to West Africa
Christian Reformed World Missions
Education in West Africa can be a very discouraging picture. Yet despite this, many teachers and schools are opening their doors for meaningful dialogue and discussions. As more opportunities arise for these exchanges, Christians are envisioning how the Biblical world and life view can make an impact on their lives and communities in Africa. For six years Sheila has worked in international missionary school settings within Nigeria. God has given her a passion for the people and culture of this country. She says, “I have seen God giving His people a hunger and thirst for what it means to serve Him with excellence. God is calling me to work with the people in addressing the opportunities arising within the national school systems.
Sheila is especially passionate about:
  1. Working alongside teachers, exploring what it means to live and teach from a Biblical world and life view.
  2. The opportunity to reach beyond one classroom by working alongside West African teachers who are hungry to learn and make a change within their schools and systems.
But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.”
I Peter 3:15
