During the 12 years that Jo served as a trustee of Keswick Ministries, she developed the world mission input into the event and was responsible for overseeing the evolution of the exhibition venue from a small marquee to a large, multi-function venue as part of the vision to fulfil the ‘serving God’s mission’ aspect of Keswick’s vision.
As a governor of Redcliffe College for 12 years, Jo had a governance portfolio, and was part of overseeing the relocation of the college’s residential facility to new premises, offering new courses and flexible learning modes. She was also involved in the appointment process for a new Principal.
ECM Britain (European Christian Mission) appointed Jo as trustee where she served for 12 years, the last three of which were as Chair of Trustees. The appointment of new British Director and the sale of their premises and relocation were among the significant milestones during her tenure, enhanced by good succession planning through the appointment of new Trustees and a new Chair, leaving the board in a stronger position than it had been previously.
Having stood down from the above-mentioned three governance roles, Jo now serves on three different boards as a trustee – Lifewords (formerly Scripture Gift Mission), Syzygy Missions Support Network, and Latin Link (Britain and Ireland) of which she is now Chair of Trustees.
Jo is also a member of the Association of Chairs which seeks to support those in chairing roles in the charitable sector. She has completed a number of training courses on issues related to good charity governance.
