For Immediate Release

 

Neil O'BoyleWe are delighted to announce the appointment of Neil O’Boyle as National Director of British Youth for Christ.

Neil’s clear calling as an evangelist and his extensive experience of YFC ministries across the world over 23 years will be invaluable assets in leading BYFC into the next chapter of its mission to take the Good News of Jesus relevantly to every young person in Britain.

We recognize that Neil’s move will be a big loss to YFCI and he and his family will be greatly missed. He has done a great job in introducing new evangelistic initiatives and developing the shape and strength of International Field Ministries. Neil’s unique gifts, talents and qualifications will propel him in this new role and we are excited at what the LORD is doing. In the greater economy of God’s Kingdom, we are ‘One YFC’ and can see the wisdom of this move. We look forward with anticipation to the next chapter for British Youth for Christ and seeing many more young people in Britain encounter Jesus!

Neil will take up his new appointment at the beginning of August. Please do stand with us by praying for Neil and his family as they prepare for the move and all that it will entail.

We also want to record our eternal thanks to Gavin Calver who will be taking up his new role as Director of Mission / England in the UK’s Evangelical Alliance. Please also pray for Gavin as he readies himself to take on his new role.
