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.
