We are delighted to welcome Andrew Neill as our new North Coast E3 Worker!
Before joining SU, Andrew studied Law and Politics at Queens, and graduated in 2009. After that he spent a year working with the CIYD “Jump” programme before being appointed as the Children’s worker in Glenavy Parish where he spent 8 years. He is passionate about sharing God’s Big Story and loves having the opportunity to do so.
He is married to Claire and has a daughter called Emma. He has lived in Coleraine since 2012. His hobbies include following football, playing golf and drinking as much coffee as he can.
He can’t wait to get started working along the North Coast. Please pray for Andrew and his family as he begins this exciting new role!
Introducing our new Field Ministries Director – Leanne Dunlop
Leanne has been with SUNI since 2005, initially as a schools worker (first in East Belfast, later in Bangor) and for the last four years as the Schools Ministry Leader. Her new role will bring oversight and leadership to SUNI’s field ministries – currently Schools and Camps & Missions – with the opportunity to grow, develop and explore new avenues!
Leanne is excited about potential new opportunities as we continue to fulfil our desire to see more and more children, young people and their families encounter God through the Bible. Pray for wisdom as she settles into this brand new role within SUNI!
“Training and Resources” have always been a part of the fabric and heartbeat of SU, both globally and here in Northern Ireland.
By having Resourcesthat help people to read their Bible through the use of daily Bible reading notes, to resourcing teachers with assembly outlines, and helping out Camps and Missions volunteers as they prepare to lead their teams.
By TrainingCamps and Mission volunteers on how to handle the Bible, to training pupil leaders on how to lead their SU group in their school, or even partnering with church denominations to train theological students on the importance of schools ministry.
We want to cement and develop this further through the new Training and Resources department.
As a volunteer led movement, that has the Bible at its centre, whilst seeking to honour and value children and young people, we want to work alongside churches to train up and resource the ministry amongst children, young people and adults across our country, having the best trained and resourced volunteers around.
As we step into our new 5 year strategy please pray for wisdom and discernment as Phil and Paul develop this side of the SUNI ministry.
