On Sunday, August 13th, we are excited to have Jamie and Arya Sanfilippo speak briefly at our morning service. They are home for the summer months from Africa where they have been supporting the work of Macha International Christian School (MICS) in Zambia.
Jamie Sanfilippo has a diverse portfolio of ministry experiences. Jamie’s professional background is in communications, broadcasting, design and administration. After spending 5 years as Programming Pastor at The Meeting House Oakville, Jamie and his family moved to rural Zambia to work in partnership with The Meeting House and Mennonite Central Committee, where they planned and hosted short-term learning teams throughout Southern Africa, focusing primarily on MCC’s HIV/AIDS related work.
Short-term ministry has been one of the mainstays of Jamie’s life, having served on teams in Mexico, Thailand, Honduras, Africa, and Northern Europe. While his formal Bible college degree is in Biblical Studies and Missiology, his real passion for short-term service comes from his numerous points of contact with various cultures, seeing first hand the transformative impact that cross-cultural service and learning has on both the team participants and the local country nationals.
Jamie and Arya have three children, Kana, Talya and Ranen. To catch up on their most recent activities, click here to read their latest newsletter.
