INTRODUCTION: Josh and Audrey Weiger fell in love with Jesus and God’s people early. That love now calls them to mentor young Church of God leaders in Europe and the Middle East, and to serve people caught in human trafficking, helping them to build healthy and sustainable lives.
Their motto is: “Love God, Love People.” They are passionate about bridging generations, building up young leaders, equipping others to fulfill their God-given dreams, and using business as mission to provide for God’s people.
“We believe that life is often perplexing, but that God is big enough to handle our questions and the circumstances life throws at us. God will bring about God’s kingdom on this earth through us, as followers of Christ. What a gift we have in our relationship with God and with each other.”
“We enthusiastically accept the call to join the Three Worlds team.”
