Next generation directors appointed to Evangelical Alliance leadership team
The Evangelical Alliance has demonstrated its commitment to raising up the next generation of leaders by appointing two new directors under the age of 40 to its leadership team.
Chine Mbubaegbu, aged 30, has been appointed the Alliance's director of communications, while 35-year-old Gavin Calver – currently national director of Youth for Christ (YFC) will take up his position as director of mission/England at the Alliance in June 2015.
Steve Clifford, general director of the Evangelical Alliance, said: "Both Chine and Gavin are passionate followers of Jesus, with a desire to see their faith impact all who surround them. They will bring their extraordinary talents to the leadership of the Alliance and represent a major statement as to our commitment to connect with and serve a whole generation of younger adults."
Gavin and Chine join Steve Clifford (general director), Helen Calder (executive director: finance & services), Fred Drummond (national director, Scotland), Elfed Godding (national director, Wales), Dave Landrum (director of advocacy), and Peter Lynas (national director, Northern Ireland), on the leadership team of the Alliance.
