Rt Revd Paul Butler - Patron
Love Burundi Patron
Paul Butler has been bishop of Durham since early 2014. His first visit to Burundi was in 2000 although his interest in God’s work in the nation had begun a few years earlier alongside his concern for the whole region covered by the Rwanda Mission (later Mid Africa Ministry and now part of CMS).
He has now visited Burundi several times and taken church leaders and MPs on visits with him. He seeks to keep Burundi as a nation in the awareness of the UK church and the UK Government.
He has been a supporter of Burundi Christian University from the outset of its idea.
His wife Rosemary has accompanied him on several of his visits.
