9 July 2015 | San Antonio, Texas, USA [Victor Hulbert, tedNEWS] The election of officers to serve the Trans-European Division was completed on Thursday morning, 9 July, with Audrey Andersson and Nenad Jepuranović being asked to continue in their roles of Executive Secretary and Treasurer.
Pastor Andersson is experienced in both administration and ministry. Indeed she has ministry in her genes, born in Ireland to Pastor and Mrs Patrick Boyle. She trained for ministry but there were no openings so she worked in business as a legal editor and later ran her own business. She was called to the Swedish Union of Churches as Executive Secretary in 2002 and eight years later was asked to serve in the same role with the Trans-European Division. She is married to Lars Eric Andersson from Sweden.
Following her re-election she said, “My vision is to serve the Lord to the best of my ability within the TED.” She aims to “lift up Jesus so that He can draw people to Him.” She will support and further develop the work of the Secretariat around the Division to support mission.
Nenad Jepuranović was born in Belgrade, Serbia. Like Pastor Andersson he is a graduate of Newbold College and worked in industry before joining the TED in 2005 as a Senior Management Accountant. He has gained a good understanding of Church finance having held the posts of Assistant and Associate Treasurer before becoming TED Treasurer in 2013.
Nenad is married to Tanya who is a registered nurse. “In addition to serving the Lord and the Church,” he says, “my goal is to ensure that current resources are used to maximum efficiency. This would include sharing resources within our Division and beyond.”
Together they join with Pastor Raafat Kamal, re-elected TED President, to progress the mission of the Church across the 22 countries of the TED following Pastor Kamal’s mantra, “Everything we do should be seen through the lens of mission.” [tedNEWS]
