Darren and Elise Cooper with Eleanor and Bethany joined GRN Australia in 2009.
Graydon Colville (International Director) visited their church in 2008 and this was their first encounter with GRN.
The couple felt God's leading demonstrated through a series of closed employment doors and the prompting of the Holy Spirit as Elise undertook a course: "Perspectives on the World Christian Movement".
Darren grew up in a Christian family and gave his heart to the Lord at 10 years old. After leaving school he trained as an auto electrician, later moving on to electrical engineering.
Elise was born into a missionary family, and made her own decision to follow Christ as a child. She was trained as an English teacher and has taught for 9 years in high school.
Both Darren and Elise have been involved in a range of ministries including Girls' and Boys' Brigades in their local church.
Darren is the Production Manager with the responsibility for Saber production, and also contributes to other technical aspects of the mission.
Elise works on the GRN website content and design as well as looking after their two children.
Darren and Elise join GRN with the enthusiastic support of Campbelltown Baptist Church.
Please pray for their work with GRN and for the growth of their prayer and financial support team. If you would like to receive their newsletter, please write or phone the office and we'll put you on the list.
