Paul Gray

Paul joined the Friends of Israel as Ministry Representative for NZ in January 2022. Born and raised in Southland Paul came to faith in Christ in 1988 and was baptised at Grace St Chapel the same year. He is married to Therese and they have five children.

With a passion for the gospel, and a heart to share with others how they can know true peace through relationship with Jesus, Paul will be travelling throughout the country helping people understand the truth of God's Word about Israel and Messiah and teaching how people can stand with Israel and the Jewish people.

Simon Lawry

Ministry Development Representative - AU/NZ

Simon was born and raised in Christchurch and became a christian when he was 11. In his teens he moved to Adelaide in Australia with his family where he met his wife Jo and they have three adult children.

Simon completed Bible College in Adelaide and served as a Pastor before joining FOI in 2016.

Simon is a passionate speaker with a desire to encourage Christians in their faith as well as helping those that don't have faith begin that journey. From taking tours to Israel, teaching God's redemptive program in churches or leading small groups through the significance of the Jewish feasts, Simon can help with understanding the truth of the Bible about Israel and the Messiah with greater clarity.
