Uche and Rachel Nweke serve with SIL Africa Area and Wycliffe Bible Translators of Canada. They are passionate about the Word of God transforming lives as people respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ. It is to this end that they contribute in various ways to the work of Bible translation.
Through Rachel’s work in mobilization as a Mission Coach, she learns the personnel needs of Wycliffe Canada’s partners, and in turn, recruits and mentors Canadian missionaries accordingly, so as to strengthen the Bible translation work around the world. Rachel also continues to remotely support the Scripture Engagement team in Nigeria.
Uche comes alongside leaders in his role as Africa Area Strategy Director. The area comprises 31 countries, where he serves in strategic planning, monitoring, evaluation and learning, to support God’s mission as appropriate in each context. The big picture: “How do we get God’s Word into more hands, transforming more lives, more efficiently and effectively?”
Uche and Rachel have three daughters and currently live in Hamilton, Ontario.
