Friends International is delighted to report that, from 1st September 2016, Alan Tower will be our new National Director.
Alan has been working for the last 23 years with the mission agency Latin Link, as Team Leader in Britain and Ireland and then more recently as International Team Leader. He will continue part time with Latin Link while the next International Team Leader appointment process is worked through.
Alan brings with him these many years of missional leadership experience as well as a profound desire to see people of all backgrounds come to know Jesus.
We are confident that Alan can take Friends International forward, increasing and strengthening our partnerships with churches to enable international students in the UK to encounter the love of Christ.
Alan, who is married to Margaret with four children, has a Masters in Business Administration from Heriot Watt University and a Diploma in Biblical and Cross-Cultural studies from All Nations Christian College. Having lived in Bolivia for six years working on Theological Education initiatives Alan is fluent in Spanish and has insight into the international student experience.
Dave Pepper stepped down at the end of 2015 after serving as National Director for seven years. We are grateful for his leadership and wish him God’s blessing in his new work with Emerging Leaders. As Alan takes over please pray that we would know and walk in the path the Lord has for us.
