Max and Dorothy Chismon

Max and Dorothy first met in the Philippines, in the late 1970s, when they were both part of a ministry team from New Zealand that was based in Cebu City, Philippines. Their two children, Shelly and Kevin, were both born in the Philippines and now they have their own families in New Zealand and Australia respectively.

Max and Dorothy’s vision has been consistent throughout their ministry career, which is to see the whole Church and all God’s people mobilised to be on mission with God. Together with their team, they are now based in Butuan City, on the Philippines southern island of Mindanao, where they oversee their ministry centre and international global developments.

Max and Dorothy, and their international team, oversee the expanding ministry of Simply Mobilising International (previously known as Living Springs International) both within the Philippines and beyond. More than ninety countries now conduct the Kairos course and it has been translated into over 30 different languages.

Simply Mobilising(SM) is an outgrowth of the Kairos Course movement and involves multiple mobilisation courses and programs, the development of mobilisers and the ministry of mobilising. The end vision is to see the whole Church and all believers mobilised to be on mission with God, 24/7, both in their own culture and cross-culturally as well.
