W M Syn (DMiss, Biola University) served as a missionary in South Asia for almost 10 years with his family and during that time, they worked with local partners to establish a ministry which continues to support community development, leadership training and church planting ministries in over 50 communities.


He is currently the Director of the Asian mobilisation base of a global mission agency, responsible for mobilising, equipping and sending missionaries from the Asian region. Prior to going to the field, he was an engineer and manager in the Automotive industry in Australia.


W M Syn is passionate about seeing the local church equipped to be effectively involved in global missions, about seeing the emerging global south missions movements grow to maturity, and seeing our current missionaries thrive and become fruitful on the field. He regularly teaches on Asian missions trends, cultural intelligence, multi-cultural teams and effective mobilisation strategies. He also helps local churches grow in their sending capacity, helping them develop effective local church missions practices.
