The Board of Trustees are a representative body of men and women from across the NISCU areas. They bring different skills and experiences to the board, but are united by a passion that gives all children and young people across our NISCU areas the opportunity to hear about a God who cares for them.
A message from the Chair Jan 2024.
We are very pleased to say that as a charity we have been very blessed to have such a group of dedicated Trustees. Every charity needs Trustees, it cannot function without them and NISCU is no exception and whilst our Trustee board is small, we are very keen to recruit more.
So we would be very grateful if you could help us, below are three ways in which you could help.
- Above all, pray for two or three people to come forward to help maintain an ongoing work that enjoys a lot of respect in both schools and churches alike.
- Is it you? Prayerfully consider joining the Board of a very important, worthwhile organisation.
- Is it a friend? Have a chat with anyone you think may be suitable for the task.
Dave Grime (Chair of Trustees) would love to hear from anyone interested in becoming a Trustee and share in the work of telling young people about Jesus, both a pleasure and a privilege. For any enquiries or comment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject ‘For the attention of the trustees ‘.
Many thanks from all of the Trustee board,
