Bio Peter Briscoe

Peter Briscoe studied Industrial Chemistry and Management at Loughborough University of Technology, England. He moved to The Netherlands in 1974 and was asked by his company to set up a subsidiary in Holland from 1978 where he was Managing Director until 1986.

From 1987-1989, Peter was Executive Director of the Christian Businessmen’s Committees (CBMC) in The Netherlands. In 1990 Peter set up “Synthesys”, a consulting company specializing in the development and marketing of industrial chemical specialties. When the Berlin Wall collapsed and opportunities to develop business in Eastern Europe opened up, Peter launched Europartners, a movement dedicated to reaching European business and professional people for Christ and helping Christians in positions of leadership in business, politics, and other professions to "go and make disciples in all nations." By 2002 there were local national movements in 28 European countries, encompassing around 500 local groups and some 5000 active co-workers. Now, Peter continues as a Board member to lead this organization as it reaches and teaches top leaders about Jesus.

From 2002, Peter took an assignment as Managing Director of HE Space Operations with offices in Houston, Katwijk and Bremen, serving the European Space Institutions, and specialized in providing professional services for human spaceflight activities. Peter led a team of some 50 people, made up of medical doctors, biologists, engineers, physicists and business specialists. Two new programmes in which the company is involved are the Galileo GPS satellite systems and the "Aurora' Journey to Mars programme.

From March 2007, Peter retired once again from business to develop the ministry of Crown Financial Ministries and Crown Companies in Europe.

At home in Leiden, Peter is a member of the Leiden Baptist Church where he chairs the elder board. He has been married to his Dutch wife Didie since 1972 and they have three grown-up daughters.
