Mission Partners

We are privileged to partner with a number of missionaries and organisations. Their work includes gospel outreach, Bible translation, discipleship, education and church planting. They serve both in the UK and overseas. Some work in sensitive situations so we cannot include them here. We receive regular news from them and support them financially and, more importantly, in prayer.

David and Liz Bhakiaraj

Serving with Pioneers UK in Cardiff


David and Liz are originally from India, served in their home country for eighteen years, the Philippines for three years and in the Middle East for five years before coming to Cardiff in 2012 to work with PIONEERS. They have a married daughter and a son in Uni.  Their ministry is among unreached people in the city who represent the major religions of the world and have come from countries closed to the gospel.

Along with their team of fellow missionaries and many volunteers, David and Liz have been working among children, students, women, men, families, and those with special needs.  Many of these people are refugees, asylum seekers and immigrants. 

The goal of their ministry is to present the gospel to the different ethnic communities in culturally relevant ways, give them an opportunity to know and have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, help them become strong disciples and support them to be effective witnesses among their own people.

The ministry is carried out in partnership with several local English-speaking churches and ethnic fellowships (Arabic, Indian, Iranian, Filipino & Pakistani),and seeks to encourage, train and initiate outreach opportunities for these brothers & sisters to either join with or start on their own.

David and Liz are looking to expand the ministry and God willing place new team members in Swansea and Newport where there are large ethnic communities.

Waiting for the Lord’s leading to serve in Bolivia


Hello we are Matthew, Nair & Anna-Maria Jones.  At the moment we are living in the UK.  Our hope is to go out to Bolivia and work in the Quechua community in Sucre.  The Quechua hold strong animistic beliefs and many are unreached for Christ, and also live in places that are hard to reach.

Our desire short term is to go out for 1 year, then God willing longer term.

Roy and Jenny Ramble

Serving with Raj Ministries in India


Roy and Jenny founded and lead Raj Ministries.  They began in 1986 when God called them to leave the city of their birth and settle in the remote village of Rupaidiha on the Nepal border.  In the last 34 years they have been actively involved in founding the AGC School, which now has 800 students, the Mahima Niwas which now houses 70 girls, along with numerous other projects serving the poor and vulnerable of northern India and Nepal.

Roy has been responsible for building all the infrastructure with his skills in architecture.  He is  also the Senior Pastor of the Church.  He has been looking after the accounts but is now presently mentoring a person to take over the accounts and administration.

Jenny played a key role in setting up the school as she has a college degree in education.  She is currently the school’s principal and takes care of the administration.  The plight of the downtrodden and abused woman have always been close to her heart as she was abandoned by her own family because of her faith in the Lord.  This suffering led to the founding of Mahima Niwas and SEEMA where she nurtures and shares the love of Jesus with many women and girls on a daily basis, raising them up in the Lord as their surrogate mother.

Dan and Rachel Hulley

Serving with Ethnos360 in Papua New Guinea


Daniel and Rachel Hulley are church planting among the North Wahgi people of Papua New Guinea. Steeped in animism and religion, people continue to live in spiritual darkness, but since 2012, a small group of believers have come into the light of knowing Christ as their Saviour. We are currently translating the New Testament into the North Wahgi language, teaching literacy and training disciples to teach other people the truth of the Gospel. Our hope and prayer is that these fledgling believers will be equipped through the teaching of God’s Word and the power of the Holy Spirit to disciple their own people and keep the Gospel light shining.


Minster also supports these organisations:

  • Open Doors
  • Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship
