Jeroen Bruins – Drs. Geology (Free University of Amsterdam) 1985
Jeroen has a professional background in the oil and gas industry. Whilst calling Australia home for many years, he has also lived and worked in the U.K. Oman, Nigeria. He is currently the Manager, Exploration Strategy and Planning with Woodside Energy.
Jeroen lives in Perth and has been married to Eva for over 30 years. They enjoy three adult children. Jeroen has been a follower of Jesus since he was 18. Jeroen’s passion and gifting is in the area of prayer and seeing the Christian faith transform people’s lives. This has caused him to be involved in a variety of ministries from initiating and encouraging networks of Christians to pray in and for those in their workplaces to starting and maintaining a micro-finance mission work in Zambia, Africa.
In the last few years, Jeroen has been led in his work context to learn about mediation and its benefits. This then drew him to biblical peacemaking and PeaceWise training as a holistic means of reconciling people at a heart level and not just on an issues level. He sees this as an excellent opportunity to witness to others about the saving grace and forgiveness of Christ.
Jeroen and Eva are actively involved in their church Providence Church in Subiaco, a missional-focused church plant led by Pastor Rory Shiner. The more recreational passions of Jeroen are cycling, hiking, bird watching and reading or just having a good time with friends around a good meal.
