Mark Holt   

Director of Ministries

Mark’s experience within Global Interaction as a cross-cultural worker, Team Leader and State Director gives him a practical and very real understanding of living and working in a cross-cultural setting. These experiences equip him in his strategic leadership role to develop leaders and see faith communities emerge among our least-reached people groups. He is passionate to see people of all cultures have an authentic encounter with Jesus and the emergence of life-transforming, disciple-making communities.
He is responsible for providing direction and leadership for our cross-cultural teams and Global Consultants.



Interim Director of Mobilisation, Partnership and Development

Andy has a diverse professional background having served as a cross-cultural worker following a career in Urban and Environmental Planning. Andy’s passion for the environment led to initiating a ministry that challenges least-reached communities to ponder why care for God’s creation, what His plan is for Creation and our role as stewards of Creation.

Andy is now excited to work with those following a call to cross-cultural mission and journeying with them as they think theologically about their gifts and profession and how these can impact God’s kingdom. His role oversees recruitment and training/formation of those called to serve in a cross-cultural context and partnerships with a range of churches, organisations and individuals, without which the vision of Global Interaction would not be possible.
