Chris Lejeune was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. While working in Dubai, he came to faith and began working in full time ministry – first as an intern at United Christian Church of Dubai and then as a pastoral assistant and later assistant pastor at Redeemer Church of Dubai. He served for six and a half years on staff and as an elder. Since returning to South Africa Chris has been working in ministry in his home city of Johannesburg, and has a desire to see healthy churches planted and church leaders trained and equipped in the hard to reach places of South Africa. He and his wife Nicky have two daughters.
