Mark & Anna Burgess oversee Oikos Ministries.
Mark, Anna, Daniel (9), Joel (7) & Kaleb (4) have been in Peru since September 2007 and planted Oikos in April 2010 and now lead the team, the church in Lima, as well as the team and movement in the jungle.
We are originally from England, and our home and sending church is St Thomas Church, Philadelphia in Sheffield. This church has helped us form our vision and calling which affects the direction of Oikos. Our main calling is to build a community or family of equipped disciples who are making disciples who are making disciples. These can then be sent out to plant churches and equip, inspire and grow leaders in Peru and beyond.

Ronald & Nancy Santillan oversee Oikos Pacifico
Ronald was born in Callao and grew up in Peru’s capitol city of Lima. Nancy was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. She has lived in Lima since 2011. Ronald joined Oikos in 2010 and Nancy in 2011, where they began working in a Lima slum. In 2013, they were married. They have a heart to bring worship, healing and freedom to the nations through creating spiritual families and communities among those who have been outcast and rejected by society.
Ronald and Nancy lead Oikos Pacifico which is a community of believers located in the Lima slum. They are dedicated to seeing leaders from Pacifico being raised up to disciple and lead their families and communities.
Ronald & Nancy are busy adjusting to becoming parents, welcoming baby Arielle in May 2015.
