New regional leader for Scotland and North West England

We are delighted to announce that James Glass has been appointed to the role of Regional Leader for the Elim churches in Scotland & north-west of England.

James is currently the senior minister of the Glasgow Elim church and took up that post in 2009. Before that, he was the associate pastor at Reading and moved from there to lead the Crawley church in 1998.

Already serving on Elim's National Leadership Team since 2014, James will transition from leading the Glasgow church to becoming the regional leader full time.

James replaces Kevin Peat, who after more than two decades of outstanding leadership and ministry in the role of Regional Leader, will be leaving the post during October.

Kevin and his wife Margaret will be greatly missed. They have given care and support for our pastors, spouses and their families, as well as thousands of people in churches across the UK and beyond.

“Kevin really cares about people and always goes the extra mile to encourage, to strengthen and to support,” commented Chris Cartwright, Elim's General Superintendent.

“I know you will join me in praying for Kevin and Margaret as they step forward into all that the Lord has for them in the future.

“We also pray for James and Beryl, along with our local ministers and churches for a fresh season of ministry and mission in the communities that they serve.”
