Appointment of SU's new President

Story type:

We are delighted that Penny Boshoff has been appointed as President of SU's Council, effective 1 January 2018

Penny Boshoff

Penny’s passion for sharing the good news of Jesus with children has been inspired and nurtured by Scripture Union for more than 25 years and she considers it a great joy to continue to serve through SU in her role as President.

Penny had a clear call from the Lord to serve him through SU back in 1992 and that service has taken different forms over the years: staff member (publishing team, 1992-97), member of the publishing board (1995-98), member of Council and then trustee (2001-14) and contributor to SU publications, particularly Daily Bread (1999-present), to name but a few.

Penny is currently a teacher in a C of E primary school in Sevenoaks where, amongst other things, she runs a Guardians of Ancora lunchtime club.

Penny lives in Kent, is married to Andrew and has three children.

The President of Council oversees the proceedings of SU's Council and is a high-profile advocate of the Movement and its mission activity.

Penny succeeds Bishop Paul Butler whose leadership we much appreciated from 2011-2017.
