Richard & Leearron

Richard and Leearron met when Richard was serving on Pais England, they then got married and pioneered Pais in South Africa. Because they both share a passion for developing people, equipping and empowering leaders of all ages, they decided to take on the directorship of Pais UK, which had a great foundation laid out by Pete & Bryony Baker. Pete will continue as the European Director.

England is the spiritual home of the Pais Movement, pioneered by Paul & Lynn Gibbs in 1992. Despite a long history of Christianity on the British Isles stretching back almost 2000 years we find ourselves in a position where over 95% of young people in England have no connection with a local Church. We recognize that if we are truly to shape the nation we need to learn how to serve schools. Schools are open to the input of Christian organizations like Pais and we know are incredibly formative places for young people.

Pais teams are in high demand all over England and we have opportunities to serve in Church plants, contemporary Churches, more traditional Churches, cities, villages, towns, rural settings, seaside locations and more! Many of our Church partners have great connections with schools in their communities and serve their world through foodbanks, skate parks, kids ministry, student ministry and many other ways.

As a Pais apprentice in England you will have incredible opportunities to grow and learn, step out of your comfort zone, be involved in sharing the gospel with thousands of young people in schools and be able to intentionally mentor young people in your Church community.

By being part of Pais England, you can take the gospel to a generation that has never heard it before. Join our wave after wave movement of missionaries as we serve together to advance God’s Kingdom and erode the kingdom of darkness!
