Changing Roles

John & Dorthy

There have been some changes to the staffing of SGA in recent months, due to Field Director, John Birnie’s move to part-time ministry.

In the period when the need for a new Field Director became the subject of special prayer, John Duffy from Edinburgh expressed his desire to serve God through SGA. This was the beginning of a process that would culminate in God’s timely provision. John has extensive experience in publishing and is well qualified and experienced to fulfil the role of Communications Co-ordinator. In due course Mark Foster moved to the new role of Field Director and John Duffy has been appointed as Communications Co-ordinator.

In his part-time arrangement, John Birnie will focus on writing material for SGA and assist with deputation in Ireland.

"I am enormously indebted to these two men who have served God faithfully and would like to record my grateful thanks to John as Field Director and Mark as Communications Co-ordinator. They both carried out their roles with dedication and professionalism. Mark will appreciate your prayers as he takes on his new role of overseeing the Field ministry.

It gives me great pleasure to welcome John Duffy to the SGA team! I commend him to your prayers as he settles into his role and learns more about the ministry of SGA."
