Heather’s mission involvement began when she was invited by a St Mark’s mission partner to help with kids' work at an OMF conference in Thailand in 2014. It was a truly eye opening experience, meeting with missionaries and hearing about how God is moving in East Asia. After another mission trip to Thailand she felt God leading her to explore opportunities to use her professional skills in web & digital marketing in mission.
An opportunity arose for Heather to spend 4 months in Tokyo in 2016 helping to develop and grow OMF’s short-term mission discipleship programme, Serve Asia, by setting up a website and social media channels.
Now based at the OMF UK office she has continued in this role while taking on another managing online campaigns and supporting OMF centres across the world in the areas of social media and web content. She is excited about how social media can connect people with the mission field and help them to understand and respond to God’s calling to be involved in mission in East Asia.
