Ger van Veen (Fr)
At TeenStreet I steer the leadership team, in order to stay in focus of what we would like to achieve, with all the joys and challenges that come with it! It’s a privilege to be part of quite an amazing discipleship movement called TeenStreet!
My other half time job is part of the leadership team of OM in France, where I oversee communication and public relations. I am very passionate about practical discipleship of young people, which starts with my family of 5 children! Besides that I love running, surfing and socializing.
