Wayne Larson, International Director

Wayne began his career in TV and radio, before feeling called to help start MEM’s North Africa-based production ministry over 30 years ago. Whilst there he helped with the launch of one of the Middle East’s first Christian satellite television stations, SAT-7. Wayne led the North Africa team until 2004, when he assumed the role of New Venture Director for MEM. After being challenged by Leina, who saw the need for a Gulf-based media ministry to teenagers, the Gulf team was established in 2007. Wayne co-led the Gulf team until 2017, when he became MEM's International Director. He is now based in the USA.
