CHANGE AT HOLSBY

After 14 years of service as the director of Holsby Bible School & Retreat Center, John will be handing over the leadership of the ministry to Luke Thomas. Luke has served as the principal of the Bible school for the last seven years and has a proven heart for ministry and leadership. Together with Cheryl and their three children, the Thomas family is well established and loved in the local community. Luke will take over his new responsibilities in June, at the end of the 2018-19 school year.

John and Christine will be moving to the U.S. and will enjoy being closer to their three daughters and their families. They plan to continue to be active in ministry in association with the Torchbearers.

Over the next months, John and Luke will be working closely together to prepare and coordinate the upcoming transition in leadership. Luke enjoys the full support of the excellent Holsby staff team and the ministry of Holsby will continue to thrive.

The board of Holsby encourages you to be in prayer for both John and Christine, as well as Luke and Cheryl, during this time of transition. We are excited for the future of Holsby and for new opportunities for ministry. By God’s grace and with your prayers and support, Holsby will continue to be a place where Jesus changes lives!

Sweden has an inviting landscape of forests, lakes and quaint red cottages. It is restful to the soul and endless for one’s curiosity. If you tire of the outdoors, visit Stockholm, the capital of Scandinavia.
