Tim and Tricia Barrow

Tim and Tricia Barrow returned from 26 years of overseas missionary service in South and southern Africa in 2016 and now continue as active SIM missionaries here in the UK.  Tricia is serving in a consultative role as a part of the SIM international safe-guarding team and is also involved in a similar manner with SIM UK. Tim is developing a new SIM UK ministry programme (ENGAGE) which works with UK and world-wide church partners placing gospel-workers called to help resource the UK church to communicate Jesus’ good news to surrounding cross-cultural communities.

ENGAGE recognises Great Commission nations are quite literally our neighbours, yet very often with little means of hearing the gospel. Multi-ethnic gospel opportunities surround us, yet the church sometimes needs help in taking the gospel across cultural barriers. ENGAGE aims to respond by identifying and placing carefully selected gospel workers called from majority-world church partners, not to do cross-cultural outreach by proxy, but to help resource the church for the work. Three goals embody the ENGAGE programme: to impact surrounding ethnic communities for Christ; also to help stimulate the UK receiving church with a gospel vision to cross-barriers, and finally, to grow the life and ministry of the gospel worker as they serve cross-culturally.

Please pray for our Mission Partners Tim and Tricia as they continue to serve God in mission in the UK.
