After life-long involvement spreading the message of missions and leading short-term missions teams as lay people, Blake and Esther Gibbs felt God’s call on their lives to join Agape as full-time missionaries in August 2003. With a long career in business and significant experience in management and accounting, Blake came on board to help manage the organization’s day-to-day operations. On October 1, 2005, he was asked to become Agape’s Director. He reports to the Board of Directors and is responsible for the over-all direction of the ministry and for overseeing all of its operations both in the United States and overseas. His duties include developing long range plans for the ministry’s operation and expansion for Board approval; preparation of annual plans and budgets for Board approval; development of policy recommendations for the Board; and supervision of Agape’s missionaries and staff.

 

He and Esther, who grew up in West Africa as a missionary child, travel regularly to Kenya to provide over-all guidance and direction for the ministry on the field, confer with our missionaries and national staff, conduct staff training, follow-up on accounting and budgets, etc.
