    Josh came to know Jesus in his first year at Canterbury University and was discipled by the original CO New Zealand team from CO Birmingham prior to their departure from New Zealand. Upon graduating Josh moved to Brisbane to train with CO Brisbane from 2006-08. Half way through this time he married Kirsten and she moved from Auckland to join the team in Brisbane. In 2009 they moved to Dunedin, New Zealand to start CO Dunedin under the name Engage Otago with Grace Bible Church. A huge highlight of their four years in Dunedin has been seeing labourers raised up and leave the campus equipped to serve in church planting into communities with close to no gospel witness!

    Megan was involved with Campus Outreach at Tennessee Technological University and came to Dunedin in 2010 on a Cross Cultural Project. She loved Dunedin and had a heart to make labourers on the University of Otago Campus, so in 2011 she made the decision to come back to New Zealand. She came back to do a 12 month internship in February 2013, which has been extended in 2014. Megan is currently raising support to join the Dunedin team permanently from 2015 in order to build labourers on this campus.

    Irene grew up in Canterbury but headed south to study Physical Education at Otago University. While there she grew, was challenged in her faith and saw a number of friends come to Christ; this led her to join the staff team in Brisbane Australia in 2008 after a short stint of work and travel. She has been back at her Alma Mater since 2011 serving on the campus with Engage Otago. One of the things Irene is most passionate about is the privilege of helping prepare people for life-long service to God in the unique ways that He has crafted them.

    Emily became a Christian during her first year of study at the University of Otago, and this was instrumental in her decision to join the Campus Outreach Dunedin team in 2013. She is the first student to graduate from the ministry and join the staff team. One thing that excites Emily the most about being on staff in Dunedin is the opportunities it brings to equip people with gospel truth, for the spread of the gospel throughout the whole world.
