Victor is an international broadcaster, lecturer, trainer and minister. With over 40 years experience working in Britain as well as international travels across the world in North
America, Africa, Asia and Europe, he brings with him a wealth of experience.
In addition to working as a church pastor in England, from 1998 until 2004 Victor worked with Adventist World Radio as director of the Global English Service. This role took him back to his roots as he started in ministry as a volunteer with AWR Europe back in 1979.
Based in Portugal at that time, it was also the place where he first met Luisa. They married in 1981 and settled in England. During the years he as also worked as a pastor in Birmingham, Teeside, Reading, Cornwall and Kent, taken responsibility as Executive Secretary for the South England Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, and between July 2006 and December 2015 served as Communication and Media director for the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
His horizons expanded again in the autumn of 2015 when he was asked to serve as Director for Communication, Media, Publishing and Bible Correspondence Schools for the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists | Trans-European Division, a geographical area of the Adventist Church that covers 22 countries in northern and central Europe from Iceland down to Greece, and the Netherlands across to Finland, with the Balkans, Baltic States, Poland, the UK and Scandinavia in-between.
Following a long journey with Covid he retired at the end of December 2021 but still continues an involvment on a voluntary basis. Read his reflection on his Long Covid experience here.
Victor has also hosted a variety of programmes for the international broadcasting network, The Hope Channel, and Revelation TV. Hobbies include hiking, kayaking, reading, camping and photography.
Luisa loves children. Before taking on the role of full-time, hands-on grandma, she worked as a nursery assistant with some 20+ children who got very excited every time they saw her. She helps those churches working with children. As a talented artist, crafts are among her passions - and she can turn her hand to almost anything. In her spare time, has also radically transformed our garden. Hobbies include hiking, reading, DIY, camping and gardening.
Both Victor and Luisa have a passion for ministry, for working with children and youth, and for seeing lives changed for the better. Currently they reside in Bracknell, England.
Their oldest son, Steven, is married to Jena and is a youth worker in Cornwall. Tim, three years younger, is the father to one beautiful litte girl, Emily. Their daughter, Amy, is married to John Ainsworth. They broke the trend on both sides of the family by gracing us with a set of twins, the adorable Ava and Erin. The cousins were born only 4 days apart in December 2014 and are very close to each other.
Since 1999 we have been living in Bracknell - a good location for commuting, and surrounded by the very pleasent countryside of rural Berkshire - good for hiking, dog walking, and even for the occasional kayaking activity on the Thames. In 2023 we will be moving close to Dartmoor, Devon.
