The appointment of a new Student Director is something we have been praying over for more than 12 months now. There were several potential candidates over the last year, but for different reasons the Lord closed the door. So we praise God for this appointment.
It is an important strategic role within the college management team. Also, now having someone on board will over time ease the considerable extra workload that the College principal has had to take on during the interim.
As you know for security reasons we cannot say too much, but here is a brief profile of the new Student Director;
Born into a Muslim family
Became a Christian in 1998
Married for 10 years, and they have 2 boys
He has held various Director / Senior Management business positions
Rather wonderfully, he is a former EMC graduate
He left a well paid and promising business career for full time Christian ministry
Since 2003 he has been working for Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF)
He led the youth ministry in his home church
He has significant experience in organising and speaking at Conferences & Training events
He has trained children and youth ministry church leaders on how to reach and evangelise children and youth from a Muslim background
His wife has a good level of English and does some translation work
Please pray for the new Student Director – that the Lord will help him to settle into his role, and fit in well into the existing college staff team.
