New National Directors appointed
The Uniting Church in Australia welcomes the appointment of two new National Directors to Assembly agencies.
Rev. Scott Kelly takes over the reins as the National Director of Frontier Services.
Rev. Kelly is a deacon of the Uniting Church with wide experience in engaging with government at senior levels and leading innovative justice programs. Prior to becoming a minister he worked as a geologist in the oil and gas industry in a number of remote locations.
At UnitingWorld, Rob Floyd is stepping up into the National Director role.
Mr Floyd is currently the Associate Director of UnitingWorld’s Relief and Development Unit. Previous to this role he served as a Mission Co-worker with UnitingWorld in Indonesia for seven years, experiencing first-hand the effect poverty has on people’s lives and witnessing the impact that close partnerships and support can bring. He is an active, lifelong member of the Uniting Church in Australia.
Both appointments were approved by the Assembly Standing Committee at its meeting in Sydney from 21-23 March.
Assembly President Rev. Prof. Andrew Dutney has warmly welcomed both new National Directors.
“I welcome their service and leadership in the Church, and the part they will play in helping us live out our calling to be a fellowship of reconciliation and an instrument through which Christ may work and bear witness to himself,” said Rev. Prof. Dutney.
Rev. Kelly and Mr Floyd will commence their new roles from 1 May 2014.
