Joel Edwards to leave EA
The Rev. Joel Edwards is to leave his post as General Director of the Evangelical Alliance UK in September after eleven years of service. Mr Edwards completed two five-year terms as General Director for the Alliance last year, but wanted to stay on until he had finished work on a new vision for evangelicalism, outlined in his book An Agenda for change.
He will spend his final six months as General Director presenting this vision to the church on a tour of the UK and USA. Mr Edwards announced his resignation to staff at a celebration of his 20 years working for the Evangelical Alliance and its sister organisation, the African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance.
