Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Carla Nelson, PhD, to the newly created position of Senior Associate – Africa Liaison & Educational Specialist, effective January 1, 2019. Carla will be based in Canada working with CBM’s International Partnerships team and with Field Staff serving in Africa. This new appointment comes in response to ministry shifts within the region and the desire to strengthen educational programs with partners internationally.

A significant portion of CBM’s global ministries involve supporting the education of children and the theological programs of our global partners. As Africa Liaison, Carla will work alongside Africa Deputy Team Leader André Sibomana in supporting CBM’s initiatives. In this role she will explore new opportunities and make recommendations to strengthen current educational initiatives.

Please pray for Carla are she starts her new role at CBM. Pray for CBM’s International Partnerships team and for Field Staff serving in Africa as they work to strengthen and grow CBM’s educational partner programs alongside Carla. Pray also for Carla and her family, her husband, former CBM General Secretary, Gary Nelson, their daughter, son-in-law and four grandchildren, as she transitions into her new position at CBM.
