Jamie and Tracy returned to the UK from an around the world trip with a burden to see a backpacker ministry developed globally. After meeting another UK couple who were pioneering such a ministry in Australia they decided to get involved.
Jamie and Tracy are passionate about backpacking and just can’t seem to shake that travel bug! Jamie’s a keen adventure activities enthusiast while Tracy loves to shop (an equally dangerous hobby!!). They have two son's called Ethan & Eli who keep them on their toes and they love them to bits. Jamie runs his own window cleaning business and works as a Substitute teacher. Jamie and Tracy are active members of their church in Manly, Sydney.
Casey and Christa, Canada
A few years after returning from a backpacking trip in Australia, God birthed a vision in Casey’s heart to reach backpackers with the love & truth of Christ. In 2007 Casey & Christa set out to fulfill this vision as they went to Australia and met Jamie & Tracy, Stu & Kristi who all had a like heart and vision.
Christa and Casey have a passion to see young people live in the fullness of all that God has for their lives and a deep desire to make Jesus know to this generation. Casey has worked in the automotive business for the past 9 years and loves the sun but his greatest passion is preaching the Word. Christa too loves the sun but not its effects on the skin; she is a professional esthetician at a medical spa. Casey & Christa are committed and involved at their home church Christian Life Assembly in Langley, British Columbia.
Stu & Kristi, Australia
Stu and Kristi came back from a one year world trip in 2004/5, with a strong calling and vision to develop a backpacker ministry – initially for Australians living in ski resorts in Canada.
Stu and Kristi love the outdoors and have been active in youth work, outdoor education, ski instructing, hiking, kayaking and the like. As a graphic designer and marketing manager Kristi is focused on creative communications and strategic planning. Stu is a Chaplain and is passionate about equipping young people to realise their potential and strengthen their faith in God. Stu and Kristi are also leaders in their church – a small missional community in the northern beaches of Sydney, Australia.
Our vision to see this global network working and partnering together has lead us to develop this social networking website
