Home Group Leaders


Zach and Michelle Gallman


Embassy Area Home Group

Hello, I am Zach Gallman. My wife, Michelle, and I hail from Savannah, Georgia in the United States of America. We have been happily married since 2010 and have a son, Braxton. We moved to Abu Dhabi in 2014 to teach with the Abu Dhabi Education Council. We currently live on-island near the Embassy District. We enjoy spending time with friends and sharing meals with one another. We also love to travel and see the amazing creations God has displayed on this Earth. Our passion is to reconcile the world to King Jesus. As home group leaders, we strive to help the Church see Jesus more clearly and strengthen each believer’s faith through rich time in prayer, sharing one another’s burdens, and reminding each other of God’s faithful promises. Our desire is for every individual to experience the fullness of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

We meet Mondays at 6 PM.

If you would like to be part of our home group, please email zachgallman@gmail.com.

Luke is from the UK, & Lorna is from Ireland, & they moved to Abu Dhabi 2 years ago to work as nurses. The Lord has laid it upon their hearts to lead a home group in Khalifa City. They are passionate to see faith growing and love deepened through nurturing growth through time in the word and prayer, seeking their hearts to be satisfied in Jesus.

Steve and Jan 2

Mohammed Bin Zayed City Home Group

Jan and I moved here in April 2015 in order to plant Grace Church. We are from San Jose, California, USA, where I pastored for many years. We have two grown children who live in California. Our passion is to understand and experience and share with others all that Jesus promises to be to us as Savior, Lord, and heart-satisfying Treasure – and to lead a home group which is passionately pursuing this. We would love to have you join us.

We meet Tuesdays at 7 PM in Mohammed Bin Zayed City.

Officer’s Club Home Group

Simone and I have been in the UAE for three years; we live in KCA.

I was born in Liverpool, England, and currently work for ADCB as a foreign exchange trader. I came to faith in 2010 whilst working in London and was baptised March 2011. I have a passion for sharing the gospel in the Labour camps and seeing God’s kingdom spread here in the UAE.

Simone is originally from South Africa and accepted Jesus at age seven. She has enjoyed the challenges and satisfying joy of a deepening relationship with Christ in the last six years, and thoroughly enjoys living in the UAE with its large-scale diversity.
