During the 2016 AWF Convocation in Bangkok, Dr. Jura Yanagihara was elected the new President of Alliance World Fellowship (AWF). Dr. Yanagihara has experience in many areas, one of which was serving as the President of the national Alliance Church in Brazil.
The international Alliance family is deeply grateful for the provision of such a highly qualified servant-leader. Jura Yanagihara will take over for Arie Verduijn, who will step down in January 2017 after three consecutive four-year terms.
