Here is a selection of our trustees endorsing the work of Union. A full list of our trustees can be found on the Charity Commission website.

Rev. Sam Ko

Sam Ko is Director of Global Ministries at SaRang Church in Seoul, South Korea. He is the Chair of the Union Foundation Board. Sam is married to Jennifer and they have two sons.

"The impact of the partnership between Union and SaRang Church is extraordinary. God is indeed the Great Choreographer using this very unusual partnership, between an institution in the UK and a church in Korea, to fulfil the task of re-evangelising Europe."

Dr. S. Douglas Birdsall

Doug Birdsall is President and founder of The Civilitas Group. He is also Honorary Chair of the Lausanne Movement, and led the Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization in Cape Town in 2010. Doug and his wife, Jeanine, live in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.

"My imagination has been captivated by Union's commitment to rigorous theological education, Europe-wide church planting, and an ambitious vision for publishing. This reflects the very best of theological education and church leadership with the recognition that all theological reflection must find expression in mission action, and all mission action must be theologically grounded. Additionally, I am impressed with the vision of Union and its multi-gifted leader, Dr. Michael Reeves, for maximizing its resources through collaboration with churches and theological institutions in Europe and around the world. It is a seminary on the move!"

Mike Tindall

Mike Tindall is the senior pastor at Grace Church Manchester and Regional Director for Acts 29 Great Britain. He is married to Melissa and they have five children. A former headhunter, Mike studied at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary before moving to Manchester in 2009.

"I'm excited about Union's vision of making top quality theological education widely accessible around Europe, combined with its dedication to raise up leaders and help new congregations get started. Love for Christ combined with theological rigour and mission focus are a powerful combination."


Wyn Thomas
