Ron and Joanna Zeiner BFS Project
Ron has been involved in mission for over 20 years. Several short term stints in Mexico preceded 13 years in South Africa where he taught biblical studies at the Evangelical Seminary of Southern Africa. He also took his training into Namibia, Tanzania, Rwanda and Burundi. Now back in the States, Ron pastors a mission-involved church and has for the past 5 years taken his biblical studies training short term to Uganda. Ron continues being available for short term mission ministry wherever opportunity arises. While resident missionary in South Africa with husband Ron, Joanna helped establish Christian Listeners training ministry in South Africa, Rwanda and Burundi. After returning to the States she established Christian Listeners in the US by teaching courses, training teachers, and updating/contextualizing the training materials. She continues to serve as advisor and part-time trainer in the US and creates/maintains curriculum for the ministry. She maintains ties with Christian Listeners International, a consortium of national ministries including partnerships in Africa, Asia, Europe and the US. (see instituteforchristianlistening.org) Joanna also is consultant and trainer with 2Restore ministry, helping bring to the US this UK based ministry of healing and reconciliation in the church.
