Handover of Ellel Leadership

One of the most significant moments of our recent International Leaders Conference at Pierrepont was the handing over of the role of International Director from Peter Horrobin to Andy Taylor.

The evening before the handover there was a special time to express thanks to Peter and Fiona for their many years of faithful service to the Lord and their pioneering leadership of the ministry. We had a precious time with them, reminiscing and thanking God for all the adventures of faith and His abundant faithfulness.

Then, on Sunday 3rd April, the day came for the official handover. Peter and Fiona and the Executive Leadership anointed and prayed Andy and Cath into their new roles (with Cath alongside Andy as Assistant International Director). It was a hugely significant time. As Peter handed Andy a beautiful cut-glass horn he received in 1997 from a church in Kiev, Ukraine to symbolise a new anointing on the work of Ellel for the coming days, it was clear to us all that we are heading into new days as a ministry but that we step out with our eyes fixed firmly on the Lord for His way ahead.

Peter and Fiona and others who have stepped down in retirement from the leading of Ellel will continue to walk closely with the Executive. They will make up a newly-formed group called the “Elders’ Fellowship” which will pray for and support the work and leaders in the days to come. Peter and Fiona will continue to be a big part of all Ellel does and will continue to teach and write books as the Lord leads them.

These are the beginnings of new days for the ministry but we are confident that the work is in safe hands and most importantly that God will lead us forward.
