Our People – Profile

Graeme and Di Sterne

International Students
Hi, Di and I live in One Tree Hill, Auckland not far from our two children, their spouses and five grandchildren. We met The Navigators in the 1970s and have been motivated ever since to love God and love people. My career has been in the tertiary sector so I naturally gravitate towards helping students come to know Christ and to follow Him. Di’s network is among friends and family. God has been bringing people from many nations to New Zealand so we feel a special calling to make disciples among the nations who have come here and especially in the Pacific nations. We have connections among international students, people of different ethnicities living in Auckland and in the Pacific Islands. Many years ago God spoke Zechariah 8:23 into my life “… ten men from the nations of every tongue shall take hold of the robe of a Jew saying, ‘Let us go with you for we have heard that God is with you.’” We are currently involved with people from more than ten nations.
