Margreet Jans is the oldest Dutch missionary with iTeams NL. Margreet previously served as a missionary in Colombia; she is the mother of 5 children and grandmother of 12 grandchildren. And now also mother of many children in Serbia and Uganda. As long as she can, she wants to be of service, despite her age. From the time when iTeams NL was still AWO, she has been with the organization.

Dete i Svet

Margreet went to Serbia as a missionary in February 1993 with the vision to train children's workers with the aim of reaching children in Serbia with the gospel. She was instrumental in creating the organization Dete i Svet (Child en World). This is now an independent Serbian organization led by a Serbian director and a Serbian board.


Margreet started in 1998 with children's clubs among the Roma population in Jagodina, in the middle of Serbia. This resulted in the Roma Center OAZA. This work was started together with a young Roma couple from Leskovac, Serbia. The Roma Center consists of a Roma kindergarten, a Roma church and the associated social projects, in addition to six children's clubs in the region. 

Ellel Ministries

Since 2010 Margreet has been involved in the startup of Ellel Ministries in Serbia and Macedonia. This organization helps spiritual leaders to gain insight and experience in the ministry of Healing and Freedom.


Since 2012 Margreet has been in Uganda for several months a year. Here she shares the love of Jesus with the 'forgotten' and orphans in Bulamu Village. She also trains pastors and leaders in the countryside in the ministry of healing and deliverance.


Her home church is the Evangelische Gemeente Leusden.
