New trustees for Chrysolis

Three new trustees were appointed to the board of Chrysolis this past weekend.

Trevor Raaff (left) is a South African who spent 11 years as an accountant with the multinational tyre manufacturer Michelin. For the past two years he has been studying theology at Ridley Hall in Cambridge and is about to be ordained as the curate for St. Lawrence's Church in Biddulph, Staffordshire. He is married to Carol and has two young children. Trevor is now the Treasurer of Chrysolis.

Krisztina Mair (right) works in university campus ministry with the Universities and Colleges Christian Fellowship. She is a gifted evangelist and apologist who recently completed her MA in Philosophy of Religion and Ethics, with a thesis focused on assessing the philosophical and contemporary effectiveness of Alvin Plantinga's approach to apologetics. Originally from Hungary, she has extensive experience of life and mission in Central and Eastern Europe.

Dr. Hannah Giddings (left), a medical practitioner who has spent a great deal of time in Romania, is the new Secretary of Chrysolis. She is a fluent Romanian speaker who has visited the country numerous times, with her longest visit being the eight months she spent working in a centre for disabled children near Brașov. Hannah was recently appointed as a Geriatric Registrar at Leighton Hospital in Crewe and lives near Chester with her husband Chris.

Hannah, Krisztina and Trevor join existing Chrysolis trustees Benedict Cambridge, Ashley Cooper and Nik Hookey.

New trustee Krisztina said: "There is such a need for this work in Central and Eastern Europe, and I look forward to seeing people engage with the life and mission of Jesus Christ as we help churches and organizations become better equipped to share His story in new and innovative ways."

Nik, the chair of the Chrysolis board added "the new trustees add strength to the team. They bring experience and a range of expertise, which will be of great value at this exciting time for Chrysolis."
