gavGavin Calver has been appointed Director of Mission/England at the Evangelical Alliance.

He will leave his current role as National Director of Youth for Christ (YFC) to take up his new appointment on 1st June 2015.

Gavin says:

“It has been my absolute pleasure to have served at YFC these past 13 years and in so many ways it is with a heavy heart that I’ve made the decision under God to move on. I am desperate within my lifetime to see the UK Church be more than it is right now and see cultural transformation for Christ in this land.

That is why I believe that the Lord has led me to accept the position of Director of Mission/England at the Evangelical Alliance. This new role provides me with a wonderful opportunity for serving churches in their mission across the age ranges to see more people come to know the Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour.

I will serve as National Director until the end of April. For me it’s not entirely a moment of goodbye. I will for the rest of my life remain a huge ambassador for YFC. Every staff worker, volunteer, Board member, local worker and so many more have enriched this journey and played their part.”
