Alex Shaw joined Gospel Recordings in 1969. He and Sybil married in 1973. They have lived and worked in over 13 countries. They have one son, Victor, who is married with 3 children. Victor is currently serving as the Rector of St Georges Anglican Church at Battery Point in Hobart.
While working as recordists Alex and Sybil were involved in training national recordists in different countries. Alex has helped some of them to set up GRN offices in their countries. For some years they were involved in organising and leading short term mission teams to Pacific Island countries and South America. These have provided opportunities for Christians to have a taste of living among people of different cultures and sharing their faith by distributing the recordings. Many have gone on to serve the Lord as missionaries.
Alex and Sybil are now based in Australia focusing on building relationships with ethnic churches and the promotion of the ministry and the materials.
Alex and Sybil are Partner Agency Missionaries with Global Recordings Network and Australian Presbyterian World Mission.
