Carolyn Jones is a New Zealander by birth and moved to the Netherlands at the age of 12. In her early twenties Carolyn became involved with the English-speaking wing of what was then known as Women’s Aglow Fellowship, serving as local chapter president and assistant-director. In 2015 Carolyn became the director of the European English Aglow, overseeing English-speaking Aglow groups on continental Europe. Her ministry flows in the multi-cultural, multi-contextual landscape of Europe’s international Christian community. Carolyn and her British husband Mark live in a new town just outside The Hague, called Zoetermeer in The Netherlands. This is where they raised their three sons. Carolyn and Mark are active members of St John and St Philip’s Anglican church of The Hague.

Francis is married to Barbara, they have two adult children and a daughter-in-law. In his spare time Francis likes to walk in nature or garden.
