Rebecca is involved in the Morning Star leadership team working with young people, sharing her faith, teaching them many skills as well as 

 
learning how to maintain the small tall ship, Morning Star of Revelation and hopefully gaining sailing qualifications. She will be part of the team from 2018 – 2019. The mission statement of the trust is to ‘inspire young people from all walks of life to live life to the full’ and the trust believes that ‘offshore sailing is the perfect platform to develop individuals; spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially.’

Crossroads Church is a multi-denominational church with over 65 nationalities from around the world. It is an exciting and challenging missionary context to be working with France being a highly secular country.  James and Jayne have four children, Grace, Eliana, Stephen and Joy. As a family they love being outdoors, and going on walks ('but not too long' - according to the children).
