The Schein Family are an international family, currently living in Cape Town, South Africa. Holger is from Hamburg, Germany, and Jilly, from Wellington, New Zealand. They met in Youth With A Mission (YWAM) in West Sussex, England, and became a part of the Community Church in Storrington soon after. They had their three boys while in England, and have lived in Germany, Hungary and South Africa since then. Holger and Jilly have both worked with YWAM for over 25 years, mainly in the area of discipleship training. Holger is currently part of the elders or deacons of the International DTS Centre in YWAM and is serving on the Regional Leadership team for Southern Africa, in the area of training. On any given day, you will find Holger teaching on a Discipleship Training School, mentoring young emerging leaders, or life-coaching young/experienced leaders in our mission. His heart continues to be to equip as many people as possible to be the best they can, serving the Lord all over the world in whatever capacity He has called them into.
Jilly has spent the past 16 years home-educating their three boys. This gives the family the flexibility to be doing what the Lord has on His heart for them to do, wherever He wants them to do it. Jilly says “It is a huge joy to see the boys grow and develop in their own gifts and personalities, recognizing God’s faithfulness as we serve Him where He has called us to be. It continues to be quite a journey, with amazing privileges and challenges. We are so glad to be an extended part of this special community called the Storrington Community Church. We love and appreciate you a great deal!!!”
