Lorna is a former Nurse who graduated from Charis bible college Walsall in 2016. Following 3 years of study an opportunity became available to work within the Charis Bible College. As Lorna has stated, ‘It is just awesome how Godly opportunities are sent our way!’.
Her role as Missions Coordinator is to inspire students with regards to mission as much as it is to organise their mission trips abroad and in the UK, taking the Gospel as far and as deep to people of a different culture and environment to their own.
One of the most rewarding aspects of her work has been to witness the transformation of the students on their return from missions. Initially they are very apprehensive, but on return they are beaming and buzzing from their experience!
Lorna has found it to be an exciting and challenging role and she is loving it!
