As many of you may be aware, over the past couple of years Manoj has had pastoral and teaching responsibilities for a Baptist church in Barking. Having enjoyed the work, he is delighted to be starting as a Baptist minister in training at Pinner Baptist Church this autumn. With the increased ministry and study commitments that this opportunity will entail, Manoj will be passing over much of the leadership of Instant Apostle to Nicki Copeland.
Nicki has been with Instant Apostle from the earliest days and has been central to setting our direction and developing our ethos. With extensive experience of the publishing industry and all stages of the publication process, she is incredibly well placed to take us forward as a company. Instant Apostle was co-founded by Manoj with Bridget Adams in response to a clear vision from God and it has always been our goal to seek His will for the business, a passion Nicki shares and will continue.
Manoj says, ‘I am very excited to see Nicki taking over the leadership of Instant Apostle. Having worked very closely with her for several years, I know the business could not be in better hands and am looking forward to seeing where she takes it from here.’
‘I am both humbled and delighted to be taking up the reins of Instant Apostle,’ comments Nicki. ‘We have a great team in place, and we look forward to continuing to follow God’s guidance as He leads us forward, trusting that He will continue to equip us as necessary. I wish Manoj every blessing in his new role as minister in training at Pinner.’
Manoj retains majority ownership of the company and will continue to meet with Nicki.
