Andrew Sisson - Mission Director
Andrew, Phiona, and their young son Joshua Sisson serve the amaZioni from ZEMA’s home office in Chicago. Andrew grew up in Zion with a family that traces its missionary heritage in South Africa all the way back to the 1920s. Phiona comes from Kampala, Uganda where she started her own hospital ministry to the poor people of her own country.
Andrew currently serves as ZEMA’s Mission Director. After spending 15 years in technology and project management, he had the opportunity to lead a business as a mission organization in Uganda. His combination of management, technology and missions experience give him a unique perspective, helping him to find creative solutions to the challenges of a rapidly changing missions world. His passion for missions and ZEMA has been evident, having served on the board for over 10 years before taking his current leadership role. He has a deep appreciation for African culture, evidenced by over 15 visits to the ZEMA field and several years living on the continent. His desire is to continue growing the vision of ZEMA, with the goal of working the team to eventually reach all 20 million people calling themselves “amaZioni.”
