  • Vince Ward

    Programs Director

    Vince is our Canadian member on the Every Village team (eh?). While studying Physical Therapy at the University of Ottawa, Jesus revealed His saving grace to Vince and redirected his life toward the mission field. Through many providences, the Lord led him to the Aweil people of South Sudan and Vince went on his first trip in 2002. After finishing his seminary studies, Vince was ordained and sent out with his family to live and serve among the Dinka of Aweil in 2006. After over 9 years of building up the Cush4Christ ministry, the Lord led the Ward family back to Canada. Joining the Every Village team was a natural transition for Vince because of the great partnership between Cush4Christ and Every Village in the radio and water ministries. Vince and his wife, Julie, live in Ottawa, Canada, with their three children, Samuel, Zakari, and Amina.
