About the Speakers

For 14 years Fabiano was involved in mobilising, training and equipping churches, leaders and missionaries for the “Missio-Dei” in both Brazil and Africa. During his 10 years in Africa he planted 7 churches, trained church leaders and developed a discipleship program for churches in Botswana. He initiated Bible translation into 11 African dialects and implemented BAM in Botswana through a Soccer School Academy.

Fabiano has been married to Patricia for 21 years, and they have two children—Sara, 14, and Nathan, 9. He is currently studying a Masters in Global Leadership and Management. 

Robert & Ayesha

Rob and Ayesha are GC3 mission partners commended by Cornerstone International Bible Church in Dunedin. They serve in East Asia with Student Life, part of Tandem Ministries. Their primary role is to share the gospel with university students and to help them grow in their relationship with Christ through discipleship. Their mission is “to change the world by turning lost students into Christ-centred labourers through our movements on campus.”

 At university they were both involved with Student Life, where they were encouraged and challenged in their walks with Christ and taught to share their faith with others. While serving in East Asia they have experienced first-hand Jesus’ words, “The harvest is plentiful, but the labourers are few” (Matthew 9:37). Most people there have little or no knowledge of Jesus Christ. Their ministry region has whole people groups with no Christian witness. University students are key to changing that reality. They want every student on their campuses to hear the gospel, and they want to equip those students to share Jesus with others.

Rob grew up in Oamaru. He studied Theology as well as Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University. Ayesha grew up on the mission field in Kyrgyzstan, returning to NZ to study Psychology at Otago. They have two children, Isabella, 3, and Elliot, 1.
