Who We Are

Staff Members

Ray+1.jpeg

Raymond Roth has been serving with Come Over & Help as Project Director and Administrator since 2016. Ray is passionate about advancing Reformed theology and thinking, because it exalts God in Christ, honours His Word, blesses the church, and humbles and delights the soul. Experiencing unity and kinship with brothers and sisters overseas that is rooted in Christ and that transcends culture, language and geography, has been especially enriching and encouraging. Ray is married to Paula who serves as a Special Education teacher at a local Christian school and is an avid artist. They are members of Hope Reformed Church of Tillsonburg where Ray serves as a deacon. Prior to coming on board with Come Over & Help, he served in Christian education for 18 years both as a Classroom Teacher and School Principal. He holds  B.Sc. and B.Ed. degrees from the University of Guelph and Charles Sturt University respectively. Ray likes to read, work on home improvements, eat freshly-baked chocolate croissants, travel, sing tenor and watch birds.

GREG SLINGERLAND

Communications Director

Greg Slingerland has been serving as the Director of Communications with Come Over & Help since 2018. Greg has a strong desire to see the church of Jesus Christ flourish and loves to meet Christians from all different places and backgrounds. After completing a BA in History at Brock University, Greg received a Masters in Education from D’Youville College. He spent eight years teaching and serving as a vice-principal in Christian schools. Greg and his wife Courtney were married in 2011 and have two boys, Landon and Greyson. Courtney works for a Christian group home for those with disabilities. Greg lives in the Niagara Region. Greg attends Vineland Free Reformed Church and serves as the president of the Sunday School. Reformed education is still close to his heart and Greg has the privilege to serve on the board of the local Christian school. Greg has a burden for the protection of the most vulnerable - the unborn and the elderly. He has been involved with a Niagara pro-life group for many years. In his spare time, Greg loves gardening and is trying to develop a green thumb. 

Mr. Bas Deleeuw

It is the essential duty of Christians to promote their neighbours’ well-being, especially those who are of “the household of faith.”

Come Over & Help endeavours to fulfill this biblical mandate by supporting pastors, evangelists and Christians in Central and Eastern Europe

May God continue to bless all those who share this ministry of ‘Come Over & Help’ with us.
