International Leadership and Services
SIM's International Leadership and Services group, based in various locations around the world, provides leadership, support, care, and oversight to enable the people of SIM to fulfill Christ’s mission in the world.
Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko, the International Director, is supported by the International Leadership Team. This team represents the diverse cultures who serve with SIM.
Dr. Joshua Bogunjoko and his wife are both from Nigeria. They were sent out as crosscultural missionaries in 1992 through the Evangelical Missions Society (EMS) of the ECWA church. They both have a background of medical missions in Nigeria and neighboring Niger. Joshua served most recently as the Deputy International Director for Europe and West Africa, and before that as the director of Galmi Hospital in Niger.
Dr. Dave Bremner, who takes up leadership of SIM in East and Southern Africa, is from South Africa. He helped to establish churches in unreached rural Paraguay, where his veterinarian skills opened many doors for the Gospel among the agricultural community there.
Diane Marshall is from Australia. Diane's area of responsibility is Asia and the Pacific.
Dr. Jeff Hahn (from the US) previously served in Ecuador. Jeff now leads SIM in North, Central and South America.
Other members of the team include Helen Heron, International Personnel Director, Rene Palacio as Director of Finance and Governance, and Keith Walker as Director of Strategic Development.
