Bob and Brenda Bagley – Africa
Bob has served as the Africa Area Director for Global Partners since 2009. Global Partners is the missions arm of the Wesleyan Church with ministries in over 25 countries of the world. Their specific focus is on evangelism, church planting, leadership development, and ministries of compassion. The Africa Area is made up of ministries in 17 countries, including new work started by the African church in Burkina Faso and Cameroon.
The Area Director's responsibility is to give oversight to the missionaries within the area as well as to serve as the primary contact for national church leaders. The majority of my time is spent in encouraging and advising African leaders as they move forward in reaching the rest of the continent. More about Bob and Brenda Bagley
