Kathy Giske


Kathy Giske is an Australian-Greek born in Cairo, Egypt. Living in an international community
with its many cultures and languages prepared Kathy for her life’s work. She began her career
serving in trade relations with the Australian Embassy in Athens, Greece. Her work involved
travel in the Middle East where she witnessed first-hand the spiritual hunger and physical
needs of the people. Motivated by compassion and love for these people, Kathy began to
sense God calling her to serve as an international mission strategist.

In the years that followed, the Billy Graham team recruited Kathy to serve as program director
for four world congresses that gave her opportunity to meet and build relationships with
hundreds of leaders from every continent. She has also served in leadership positions
with World Vision International, Issachar, and for thirteen years as Associate Director
with Frontier Fellowship. Through her growing networks, Kathy connected resources to
opportunities by forming partnerships that empowered indigenous leaders to be a force for
good in their community.

Today, in her role as Director of Middle East Partners, Kathy is able to converge a lifetime of leadership experience and passion to this strategic vision. Although she has no children of her own, Kathy has a passion to mentor the next generation of younger leaders to achieve pre-eminence in their sphere of influence and fulfill their calling.

For thirty years, Kathy was married to her best friend and husband, Steven Eric Giske whom she lost to brain cancer in January, 2015. She is a member of University Presbyterian Church where so frequently serves as a pastoral assistant.
