We as humans must continue to develop in order to grow and flourish. By connecting with each other, there is no room for shame and you can be meaningful to each other…this is discipleship!

I am Mervin van Putten, ambulatory therapist within the GGZ and I am also a youth and family coach. In the Netherlands, I am the initiator of the International Men’s Day
which takes place every year on 19 November and the International day of the Boy Child which also takes place every year on 16 May!

I am married and together with my wife we are members of the International Church R.C.C (Rotterdam City Church), here we are also in the ministry. My wife in worship and speaking and I handle the aftercare and Bible study.

I am very excited to work on the Project Step out of Poverty, to tackle the taboo and stigma surrounding poverty and to provide the people of the international churches with knowledge and how they can help themselves!
