André serves with CBM in Rwanda as Africa Team Leader. In this role, André works alongside CBM’s African church partners to determine and accomplish shared objectives, as well as to coach and empower our Global Field Staff. He provides support to Canadian church partnerships and facilitates SENT trips, which provide Canadians with hands-on global discipleship experiences.
André brings to this role a strong understanding of the cultural context of poverty, ethnic groups, and church life and growth. His expertise is invaluable in creating effective strategies for CBM’s ministry throughout the continent.
André first joined CBM in 2011 as the Integral Mission Coordinator, supporting short-term mission trips to Rwanda. This gave him the opportunity to educate both Rwandans and Canadians about sharing the love of God through word and deed. In 2015, he became the Director of Community Development for the Association of Baptist Churches of Rwanda (AEBR). His work involved managing joint projects between CBM and the AEBR – including Guardians of Hope, Children and Youth at Risk, and food security initiatives. Prior to this, he worked in partnership with CBM while serving in various roles on the AEBR development team.
