Scott and Carol RainsAfrica
In 2020, we were appointed to serve in Africa as the President of Berea Theological University College (BTUC) in Lusaka, Zambia. BTUC is the continent-wide ministry training school for Africa, offering Bachelor of Arts degrees in theology, ministry and leadership, and chaplaincy. It is our desire to “Raise Up Pastors and Leaders to Reach Africa” through formal education, practical training, church planting, evangelism, chaplaincy, and community transformation initiatives.
We have served as Church of God missionaries in Europe and Asia/Pacific since 1997. We served as Evangelism Coordinator for Portugal, Director of Youth & Discipleship for Western Europe, President of the Asian Seminary of Christian Ministries (ASCM) in the Philippines, and Director of Education & Youth for Asia/Pacific.
God called us to the mission field in 1996, while attending the Pentecostal Theological Seminary. When we were appointed, we moved overseas with our two children, Ryan and Stephanie. Since then, we have served on three continents, primarily working with children, youth, and students.
Starting Winterfests in Europe, Asia, and Africa are among our greatest memories along with the privilege of raising up the next generation of ministers for the continents of Asia/Pacific and Africa.
