Seghers, Greg and Carlene


​Greg Seghers – Field Director

Greg and Carlene Seghers met through Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship at Northern Illinois University where they were both studying in the early 1980s.

They were married in 1985 and moved to South Africa in 1993 to minister among the amaZioni. They have three sons, two daughters-in-law, and three grandchildren. Currently they live at Sunbury Christian Camp in the province of KwaZulu Natal. Greg and Carlene work alongside other pastors and missionaries in a ministry of evangelism and discipleship of amaZioni church leaders. They administrate and support others who run ZEBS in KZN. They also act as hosts and organizers for Zion ministries utilizing the Sunbury facility. Greg and Carlene enjoy opportunities to share the gospel and encourage Zion congregations at their own places of worship. Greg is the current Field Director for ZEMA, so the Seghers spend a lot of time with all of ZEMA’s missionaries. They meet with local families monthly and at least once yearly with those in other areas of South Africa.

The Seghers would like to see continued growth in the number of ZEBS and ZBC locations, as well as an increase in the number of nationals teaching and leading at these schools. Their personal mission statement reflects that of ZEMA: to know God and make Him known among the Zionists. To that end, they’d like to see the number of ZEMA missionaries increasing in South Africa, Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, and Botswana.
