Eric Begeer (Chairman)
My whole life I have wanted to have people share in Gods love. I am interested in other languages, cultures, and what motivates another. Several years ago I took a course on Islam for me to better understand what drives them. With Esther van Schie (Minister-Director of the organisation), Marien Kollenstaart (advisor) and others, we started an ‘al Massira’ course for Christians and other interested individuals with a Muslim background. Through this I heard of the Organisation of Faith Integration. I think it’s fantastic when people with all backgrounds and all colours, praise God together. I notice it gives many migrants and refugees something recognisable; it gives them peace when they meet other Christians and people with similar experience. Faith integration concretely assists migrants in the Netherlands with this and I would like to support this.
I am married to Klazina and am father of 5 children. I work as an information security officer at an ICT company. Besides being chairman for the Organisation of Faith Integration I work for District Congregation de Rank in Waddinxveen.
Bas Plaisier (Secretary)
Marion Huberland-van Velde (General Member)
My name is Marion Huberland, married to Joel and together we have 3 children: Mattanje (14), Josua (12) and Laelle (9).
Since a few years, as a family, we have been involved with the international church ICU, in Gouda. We enjoy the multicultural diversity, contact with people with such a different background and finding each other in faith and in the same God here.
Besides the ICU we are connected to the church in Nesselande where I am elder of development and support.
The Organisation of Faith Integration merges both these sides of our church life. I think it is amazing to be in the board and to add my little bit to the large work of God in his kingdom.
Peter van Duijn (Treasurer)
I am Peter van Duijn, married to Ria, father of 3 beautiful daughters and granddad to an equally beautiful granddaughter. Professionally I have been active in IT, commercial and management positions over the past 40 years, in companies active in the international greenhouse construction. Seven years ago I started the company van Duijn and Partners with two partners, supporting customers with advise or an interim position when innovating their company (and its processes). I am an enthusiastic member and treasurer of the Lions Club in Zevenhuizen. In the protestant churches in Berkel en Rodenrijs and Zevenhuizen I was active as youth and evangelisation elder as well as church steward for 15 years, over the last 40. At the end of 2019 I joined the board of the International Bible Bond in Amersfoort and now of course at the Organisation of Faith Integration; a beautiful initiative I would love to contribute to.
