New appointment: Mission and Digital Communications Officer

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Carwyn Graves who will begin his new role as the Mission and Digital Communications Officer in August 2021.

Carwyn lives in Carmarthen with his wife and family and will leave his role with Wycliffe Bible Translators where has held a number of roles since 2017. He is the vice-chair of MissionAssist and publicity officer for Cymdeithas y Cymod (The Fellowship of Reconciliation in Wales). As a linguist his first language is Welsh and is comfortable in German, French and English having graduated from Oxford University with a 1st class Modern Languages degree. If you want to know about ‘Welsh Apples’ – Carwyn is a published author and authority on the subject, he also has an impressive vegetable garden. 

He is a member of Penuel, Carmarthen and is looking forward to working with the churches and Associations to face the challenge of mission here in Wales. Carwyn follows in the footsteps of Menna Machreth although with a new focus which includes the importance of helping us to communicate more effectively in a digital world. It should be noted that Carwyn’s role does not include the BMS world mission element.

Speaking about his appointment to the role Carwyn said:  I am greatly looking forward to working with the Baptist family in Wales in the years to come, especially to serve alongside you in order to share the treasure we have ‘in jars of clay’.
