With Love to the World Coordinator
Are you enjoying using With Love to the World as part of your routine Bible reading?
Interested in getting more involved in the life of the congregation?
Perhaps being the coordinator and contact person for With Love to the World is the right thing for you. Faye Findlay is stepping down after her time in this role and we are looking for a new coordinator. The task involves Promoting the magazine, ordering it quarterly and distributing the copies when they arrive. Faye has prepared a detailed task list for the next person, so handover should be straight forward. Talk to Meg Orton or contact me at email@example.com for more information.
