EI is centred on its people. We pride ourselves on the fact that we are viewed as a family. To us the relationships between our workers and the people we are working with are of utmost importance. We care about the people who are willing to serve God, giving up their ‘normal’ lifestyle to go where he has called them.

Dave and Tricia Rollett
Serving with Emmanuel International in Tanzania since March 2017.
Their story together started at their first day at All Nations Christian College, where they went to prepare for cross-cultural mission. Prior to All Nations, Dave had enjoyed working as a personal trainer, but had felt God’s challenge was to ‘train for Him’ instead. Tricia had been working of a Christian charity campaigning on global poverty and had the desire to get involved in holistic mission first-hand. They have two sons, Titus (born 2015) and Cassian (born 2018).
They work alongside local churches to help communities address the challenges they face, whether poor health, lack of water, deforestation or food insecurity. Their role includes encouraging, supporting and building the capacity of local staff, church and community groups. They are assisting the running and monitoring of two projects: a water, sanitation and hygiene project, and a ‘Churches, Livelihoods and Environment’ project which helps churches identify how best to serve their community and improve their environment and provides training on tree nurseries, conservation agriculture, microfinance and fuel efficient stoves.
