Leadership and Advisory Board
As an organization, we believe that we can only fulfill the Great Commission if we respect and minister as a diverse body of Christ. Along with being great friends, the following men have been called to help our organization fulfill our calling. These are the men that we look to for counsel, accountability, encouragement and pastoring. In essence, they are our "Council of Pastors".
Bo Weaver has been supporting and pastoring missions in Grenada for close to 30 years. The ministries under his leadership have seen, literally, thousands come to Christ. In 2006, Bo sensed God leading him to start a new church in the United States (The Bridge Community Church of Northern Kentucky) . What started with just a handful of people grew into a church of over 800 in just a few short years. Along with being a pastor, he has ministered extensively in Europe, India, the Philippines, and of course Grenada.
Chuck Payne is Grenada 24-7's secretary for the board of directors. He is also currently the Global Ministry Pastor at The Bridge Community Church as well as being an executive in the financial services industry. Chuck brings a wealth of ministry and business experience as he supports and counsels missionaries serving around the globe.
Eliazar Akuchie was born and raised in Mbieri, Nigeria. Since 1996 he has been mentoring local Grenadian pastors and organizing yearly mission trips to the island. Currently living in the United States, Eliazar works for the Richland County (Ohio) Juvenile Court system, in turn co-founding the Richland Community Prayer Network and Family Coalition to mobilize local churches to work together to combat the issues that plague their community.
Chris Garner is key to our summer camp ministry and short term mission trips. After a career in aircraft manufacturing, he has spent the last 25+ years traveling the world supporting overseas missions. Chris has mastered the art of 'slight of hand' (card tricks, optical illusions) and uses its draw and wonder as a unique way to present the Gospel in places with religious restrictions or language barriers.
