Malcolm Watts

National Director

Mal’s passion is to see people in God’s service as part of the global mission endeavour to make Christ known to the least reached.  As national director Mal leads the team that helps to make this happen for Aussie Christians.  Mal’s own story shows that when one is available to God, an individual’s skills, talents and training can play a vital role as a disciple maker for Jesus in cross cultural mission.  A combination of education and experience in accounting, missiology and international development have equipped and shaped Mal for the role he has in SIM Australia. He and his wife Jenny, are graduates of MST/BCV and served with SIM in West Africa for 13 years.
