Bishop Al to become Captain Plant

Tassies are getting there first with brining the hottest news to the blogsphere!

Tassie Anglican Will Briggs posts PFJ's announcement to appoint Al Stewart to a new role in the Sydney Diocese:

Dr Jensen said "I have come to the conclusion that Bishop Stewart is the best one to lead this vital work as Director of the Department of Evangelism (Evangelism Ministries). The board of EM has warmly recommended his name to me and foreshadowed discussions within the board on the reshaping of EM and a new name to reflect a new emphasis on church planting."

"Al Stewart bring expertise, energy and firm leadership to this vital task."

"I recognise that Al has served for only a short time as Bishop of Wollongong and his leaving the region will no doubt come as a surprise and a disappointment to many. Nevertheless I believe that others will be able to build on the good work he has done in the Wollongong region."

Very exciting news. Shows the generous, evangelistic, gospel heart beating away in the Sydney Diocese.
