Bert & Surette Watson

Bert and Surette Watson (Leading Edge Christian Ministries)

A long time Bethel missionary, Bert Watson is the founder and director of Leading Edge Christian Ministries (LECM), a ministry devoted to the training and development of Christian leaders in Africa. Because of its rapid growth, the African Church faces a serious leadership crisis. Not only is there a shortage of leaders, but the majority of existing leaders lack the training they need to lead effectively. LECM seeks to address this need through the development and facilitation of transformational leader training processes for church leaders throughout Africa.

Additionally, Bert coordinates the internet-basedAfrican Forum on Leadership Development, co-leads a Trans World Radio (TWR) project to develop an African ‘leadership school of the air’,and assists AFMIN with the training of church leaders in a number of countries. In an exciting joint venture with South African Theological Seminary (SATS), Bert is applying his Ph.D. research to create a church-based leadership training program to be deployed across the continent. 

Involved in volunteer work, Surette serves with a mercy ministry called Love Letters.
