New President Appointed effective September 1, 2010


          Scripture Union Canada is pleased to announce the appointment of Rev. Dr. Lawson Murray as its new President, effective September 1st, 2010.

Lawson has over 20 years of experience in Christian ministry, most recently as the National Director Canada and Regional Director Americas of SGM Lifewords. In addition to his experience in para-church organizations, Lawson has pastored an existing Brethren Assembly. He planted a new non-denominational congregation - Orillia Community Church which grew from zero to over 150 members and now meets at a former movie house in downtown Orillia. Lawson is no stranger to the pulpit and receives frequent invitations to serve as a guest preacher.

Lawson was born in the UK and grew up in South Africa where he attended the University of Witwatersrand and Johannesburg College of Education. The Lord led him to Canada in 1991 where he studied for his Master of Divinity and Master in Theological Studies at Ontario Theological Seminary. Some years later he obtained his doctorate from Northern Baptist Theological Seminary in the USA. His thesis included pioneering research into the decline in Bible engagement in Canada, including the possible causes and trends. We are indeed fortunate at SU Canada that we will be able to draw on this research as Lawson leads us to meet our vision to encourage Bible engagement.

Lawson has diplomas in coaching rugby, volleyball and sailing. He is excited about SU Sportz and its potential to reach young people with the Gospel.

Please join us in praying for Lawson and his wife Karen as Lawson comes to serve with Scripture Union Canada.
