« Back to Paraclete Associates

Jim & Arline Parris

Our ministry has extended over 45 years in South Africa and U.S.  Experiences in pastoral ministry, overseas missions, speaking, nursing, parent education, teaching, counseling, and spiritual mentoring have opened our eyes to the challenges of being global workers.

With Paraclete, we’ve been in diverse cultures where valuable servants of Christ labor. Most are national workers. Some are missionaries. Many were under our teaching 30 years ago in South Africa. Two generations later we are back, this time in a role that focuses on bringing fresh courage for the battle. An open door is ours to serve them and the leaders they have raised up in Africa, the Middle East and Asia.
