BMS World Mission appoints new Director for Mission.

BMS World Mission has confirmed that Rev Dr Arthur Brown has been appointed to succeed Rev Peter Dunn as Director for Mission.

General Director Dr Kang-San Tan commented: “The selection panel of four, led by me and including two BMS trustees, was unanimous in reaching the decision to appoint Arthur to this crucial role within BMS.”

He went on: “Arthur has substantial missional experience from his 13 years of service with BMS in Lebanon, with our partners at the Lebanese Society for Educational and Social Development (LSESD), where his contribution was highly valued. He was selected from a strong list of candidates both from within and outside BMS.”

Rev Dr Brown has a background in youth and community development, cross-cultural Christian ministry, multi-faith work and higher education. He is committed to social and racial justice and to peace-building. He is passionate about seeing the local Church fully engaged with its local geographical community, ‘here on earth as it is in heaven’.

The date for when he will take up his new role is still to be confirmed.
