Friends, it is with great joy that I make this announcement.
For many of you who have followed the journey of Shift, from university days to now, you would know that as we’ve grown, so has our hunger to see our vision come to life - the vision “to see our generation captivated by God and impacting culture”.
“We gather to pray and contend for our nation and the nations, that we’d see a cultural renewal with multitudes coming to know Jesus; this is our heartbeat.”
Each Shift Weekend we gather, share stories, hopes and fears as we’re inspired and challenged by leaders who are championing the vision we long to see come to fruition. At New Year’s we gather to pray and contend for our nation and the nations, that we’d see a cultural renewal with multitudes coming to know Jesus; this is our heartbeat.
These events have been very significant for us in cultivating a community of people who long to see a move of God in our time. But for a while we’ve been desperate to do more than just these two events in pursuit of this cause. This is why I’m so excited about the following announcement.
It is with great joy that I share the appointment of Jordan Prance, our brand-new Strategic Director. Jordan will take on a full-time role and, with the support of the board and a team of committed volunteers, will drive Shift forwards into this exciting new chapter.
Jordan is someone who carries great leadership and vision, partnered with a deep relational and pastoral heart. He’s married to the wonderful Rebeka Prance, a powerhouse in her own right. Jordan and I will be working closely to explore how Shift can further serve the city, nation and nations in bringing the vision of Shift to life! It’s an exciting time to get involved!
We are so excited about the next chapter Shift is stepping into. With this new appointment, two more members are also joining the Board of Trustees; Heather McCormick, a communications guru working for Google, and Rowan Smith, a chartered accountant at PwC, both of whom have been actively involved in Shift over the years. We’re thrilled they’re coming on board (excuse the pun).
“As we now step up our activities, resources and initiatives, we invite you to continue to journey with us into this next season.”
Thank you to all who’ve been involved so far. It’s because of the generous giving of this community that we are able to employ Jordan. As we now step up our activities, resources and initiatives, we invite you to continue to journey with us into this next season. We’d love for you to pray for us as we seek God, asking how he wants to use Shift going forward.
Stay tuned for more info and resources coming soon, not least the beginning of this blog!
Lots of love,
