British Baptist leadership changes

There are some exciting posts being advertised at the moment, so I share them here to inform you, but also to ask you to pray with Baptists in Britain as many of our structures and those leading them go through a season of great change.

The new General Secretary of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Revd. Lynn Green, will be inducted into the post at a service at Sutton Coldfield Baptist Church on the afternoon of Sunday 22 September, marking the most visible shift in our leadership.

Alongside this, several of our regional associations are currently advertising, or have recently been searching for new Regional Ministers. Yorkshire Baptist Association and Eastern Baptist Association have recently closed applications.

Northern Baptist Association are looking for a new Regional Minister with a special responsibility for enabling mission in that area. More details here

North West Baptist Association are looking for a Regional Minister to help guide them through the next three years of organisational transition. More details here

And finally, for now, BMS World Mission is seeking a new Director for its International Mission Centre in Birmingham, the main training centre for Baptist missionaries here. More details here

Lots of change, but clearly lots of opportunity.

My prayer is that the right women and men sense the smile of heaven as they apply, and that this season of shaking and transformation might also be a season of renewal and refreshing.
