Stephen Foster

Dr. Stephen Foster is the son and grandson of pioneer missionaries who went to Zambia in 1917. Dr. Foster was born in Brantford, Ontario, grew up in Zambia, and spent much time in Angola before returning permanently in 2000 with his wife, Peggy. He has been a missionary surgeon in Angola most of the last 45 years.

Dr. Foster received his surgical training through the Gallie Residency Program in general surgery at the University of Toronto. He has held such positions as International Traveling Fellow, and Fellow in head and neck surgery and urology at McMaster University, as well as Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at McMaster University.

Dr. Foster’s passion is training the next generation of Christian Angolan physicians to be able to deliver health care to the forgotten rural peoples of Angola and in doing so, bring many to a first encounter with Jesus Christ.
