Our Team

CECP is dedicated to helping missionaries win. To fulfill this goal, we run an administratively light organization with very little overhead. Approximately 92% of everything that is given ends up on the mission field. Our team is committed to keeping this small administrative footprint to enable more gospel impact with the precious resources God's people provide.  

STAFF TEAM

tom+and+jeanTom Jackson 
Founder
Growing up reading about the need for the gospel in Eastern Europe through books like God's Smuggler, God called Tom to missionary life in Europe through a short-term missions trip in 1990. That trip sparked a church planting ministry in Ukraine and served as the catalyst for what has become CECP.  Tom and Jean live in Scotland. They have six daughters and two grandsons. Along with leading CECP, Tom pastors CentrePoint Church and travels extensively in Europe working with leaders and churches.
