Martin and Susan Harder
In 1965, Martin and his wife Anne, began working in ministry by serving for 8 years at a church in Blumenfof, Saskatchewan. From there, they followed the Lord’s calling to the community of Grassy Plains in central BC, where they served for 10 years. Their ministry there included preaching, teaching, starting and running a Christian School, as well as camp ministry.
Martin and Anne then served as field directors in home missions for 10 years. They recruited, trained and placed missionaries, and several Bible Camps were also started with the help of faithful local churches. Additional ministries included interim pastoral work in Kipling, Saskatchewan, Canmore, Alberta and Weyburn, Saskatchewan.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, and sadly Anne was called to be home with the Lord and Martin was blessed to find Susan who had also lost her spouse and were recently married. We share in their joy of finding each other and in their commitment as a team to be a blessing to children in need.
Children’s ministry has always been a big part of Martin’s life and CCI has partnered with him since 2015. We know Martin and Susan are passionate about their love for Jesus and for helping children living in poverty, to a better life through sponsorship.
