Introducing our New National Director

Story type:

The Scripture Union Trustees are pleased to announce the appointment of Dave Newton as the next National Director of Scripture Union England and Wales.

Dave Newton

Dave is currently serving as Principal at Regents Theological College and as Director of Training for Elim UK. He brings with him a passion for mission and for helping people discover Jesus through the Bible.

Dave says, ‘I'm hugely excited to be joining Scripture Union, with its long heritage of helping children and young people discover the good news of the Bible. I can’t wait to help this vibrant movement grow and develop the vital work it’s doing to help the church reveal Jesus to the 95.’

Current National Director, Myles MacBean, will continue in his role until March 2024, before handing the baton on to Dave.

Myles says ‘It has been an incredible privilege to serve with Scripture Union England and Wales for the past five years, particularly working with the team on the development and launch of the Revealing Jesus mission framework. What a joy it’s been to see so many passionate individuals fired up and equipped to reach out to thousands of children and young people. God is clearly at work through Scripture Union and the local churches we support right now, and I am excited to see what God has in store for the movement through Dave’s ministry in the coming season.’

Please join us in praying for Dave as he prepares to take up this new role, and for Myles as he prayerfully considers what is next for him.
