Victor is married to Christina, from Seattle. They have three children and live in Mozambique where they run the ministry.

Evanjáfrica

Emeritus Board Members

Our Emeritus Board is made up of past board members who, along with their families, have supported Evanjáfrica since its inception and walked alongside us through the trenches and on the mountaintops for more than two decades. Our ministry would not be where it is today without them and we are so grateful for their mentorship, love, support, encouragement, commitment, patience, wise counsel, and friendship.
