Paul will formally take over the role from current ITL Alan Tower in February 2018, but will work increasingly alongside Alan during 2017.

Paul and his wife Ruth commented: 'We both feel incredibly humbled that Paul has been chosen for this role. Please join with us in praying that we might continue to depend on God each day as we face up to these changes and new challenges.'

Paul has been appointed following an extensive period of consultation and then a recommendation by Latin Link's International Core Team, which finished with a vote on Paul's appointment by the Latin Link membership in which 75 per cent of the membership had to respond positively to the recommendation.

Following the appointment, Alan Tower commented: 'We celebrate the sense of unity and fellowship shown through this time, recognise God's hand in guiding the process, and suggest we join together in supporting and praying for Paul as he begins a new stage of Christian service.'
