MISSION NEWS - JANUARY 2023
NEW CHAIRMEN APPOINTED
Leadership changes took place last autumn in the Missionary work of our denomination as a new Chairman was appointed to both the Mission Board and Missionary Council. These changes came about because the ten year term in office had come to an end for Rev Ian Harris as Chairman of the Mission Board and Rev David Park as Chairman of the Missionary Council.

At the Presbytery meeting in Armagh in September 2022, Rev Colin Mercer was appointed as the new Chairman of the Mission Board. Rev Mercer is the minister of Omagh Free Presbyterian Church and has previously ministered in the congregations in Castlederg, Mourne and Greenville (USA). While in America, Mr Mercer served for seven years on the North American Mission Board; and, for six of those years, he was the Secretary of their Board.

Rev Mercer has been a member of the Ulster Mission Board for just over five years, and during that period, served for three and a half years as the Secretary of the Ugandan subcommittee.

At the meeting of the October 2022 Presbytery in Crossgar, Mr Eric Graham, Clerk of Session of the Lisburn Church, was appointed as the new Chairman of the Missionary Council. Mr Graham is a foundation member of the Lisburn congregation and was elected as one of the first elders of the church in 1977.

Eric’s wife Mrs Mona Graham was appointed to the Missionary Council in 1970 and has continued serving on the Council faithfully since that time, and Eric then joined her in that role approximately twenty years ago. Mr Graham has also been a member of the Mission Board for approximately eight years.

Both new Chairmen have a great vision and burden for Missionary work, and they have wide experience in visiting the Mission Field. Please pray that they will both know the Lord’s wisdom, guidance, and blessing on their term in Office.
