Andy and Rachel Symons

Andy and Rachel serve at Proclamation Institute Zambia (PIZ) - a local bible school that was set up to meet the need for bible teachers who have been trained to teach and preach the Bible faithfully.

Both Andy and Rachel have had a desire to serve God in an African context for many years. Through a year in Zambia in 2006 for Rachel, and through short-term mission trips to various countries in Africa for Andy, both had that desire confirmed. After getting married in 2007, Andy and Rachel spent five years in South Africa, studying Theology at George Whitefield College and serving in a local church. On returning to the UK, Andy pastored a small church for five years.

Andy and Rachel moved to Zambia in the summer of 2019. Andy teaches several of the courses at PIZ and Rachel is involved with the PIZ discipleship groups as well as looking after their two boys, Haydn and Daniel.
