Our Team

CECP is dedicated to helping missionaries win.  To fulfill this goal, we run an administratively light organisation with very little overhead.  Approximately 95% of everything that is given ends up on the mission field.  Our team is committed to keeping this small administrative footprint to enable more gospel impact with the precious resources provided by God's people.

Our Board

The CECP Board of directors provides covering and policy oversight to ensure that our missionaries have what it takes to get the job done.



Tom Jackson

Growing up reading about the need for the gospel in Eastern Europe through books like God's Smuggler, God called Tom to missionary life in Europe through a short term missions trip in 1990. That trip sparked a church planting ministry in Ukraine and served as the catalyst for what has become CECP. Tom lives in Bathgate, Scotland with his wife, Jean, and six daughters, and is the lead pastor at Centrepoint Church. Fortunately, he preaches better than he plays golf.
