New Regional Directors Announced
Posted by Lee Gatiss, 20 May 2019
We are delighted to announce the appointment of two part-time Regional Directors.
With the merger of Church Society, Reform, and the Fellowship of Word and Spirit, we have been looking to expand our staff team, to enable us to do more work in specific areas such as strengthening local and national networks, giving greater support to those in small, rural and evangelistically challenging parishes, and engaging more in the politics of the Church of England.
We are delighted to announce that two new Regional Directors are joining us. Revd Mark Wallace is priest-in-charge of two parishes in Colchester, and Revd George Crowder is vicar of a church in Cheshire. Both Mark and George will continue in their parish ministry, while taking on part-time responsibilities for Church Society. They each bring considerable relevant experience to Church Society and we are looking forward to seeing how their work will enable Church Society to be more effective in our goal of contending to reform and renew the Church of England in biblical faith.
Mark’s main role is as Priest-in-Charge of two churches, St Peter’s and St Botolph’s, in the Colchester Town Centre. He has been in Essex since 2012, having previously served his title post in the Diocese of Bath and Wells. Before ordination, he served in a Church Society Trust church on the Isle of Wight, and then went on to study at Oak Hill College between 2005 and 2008. Mark is married to Lizzie, and they have four sons.
After four years at Oak Hill Theological College, George Crowder spent three and half years as a Curate in St John’s, Hartford. He became Vicar of St John’s, Over, in February 2011. George is married to Kath, and they have four children.
Please pray for Mark and George, for their churches and their families, as they take on these new roles.
Lee Gatiss is Director of Church Society
