Welcome to our two new Mission Enablers
Siya Tungani is a passionate and dedicated individualwho has recently joined our team as a staff member. He is focusing on fieldwork in the Khayelitsha area. Siya is known for his friendly demeanor, charming smile, and the ability to easily connect with people.
With a passion for serving and encouraging others, Siya is committed to making a positive impact on the local church and young people facing challenges. Drawing from his own experiences, Siya understands the importance of creating an involved and inviting culture that resonates with young people. He believes in open-mindedness, respecting others' opinions, and providing a safe space for dialogue.
Siya brings a wealth of experience to the role, having been involved with Scripture Union during his high school years. He has worked extensively with children and youth and has been recognized for his outstanding contributions in leading and campaigning for programmes aimed at strengthening families. Siya's belief in innovation and his strategies for improving organizations and teamwork make him a valuable asset to our team.
Beyond his professional commitments, Siya has an exciting personal milestone coming up—he will be getting married later this year. This joyful occasion reflects Siya's commitment to building meaningful relationships, both in his personal life and in his work with SU.
We are thrilled to have Siya on board, and we look forward to seeing the positive impact he will make as he serves the local community and inspires young people on their faith journeys.
Jordan Benson, a creative and inquisitive individual, is making a meaningful impact as a new staff member at Scripture Union. Known for her thought-provoking questions and passion for artistic expression, Jordan brings her enthusiasm to the realms of communications, social media, and field work in the Pinelands/Thornton area.
Having experienced the transformative power of SU firsthand, Jordan is eager to support and train leaders who can shape the faith of young people, just as her mentors did for him.
With a background in Public Relations and Communications, she brings valuable skills to contribute to God's kingdom work through SU, aiming to inspire growth and reflection in the lives of young hearts. Drawing from her own journey, of having participated in holiday clubs, camps, and school Christian groups, Jordan understands the challenges faced by young individuals in schools and local churches. She empathizes with the confusion and chaos that teenagers often encounter and she looks forward to guiding and serving as a voice of truth, helping them navigate through these challenges and find firm footing in their faith.
While Jordan is deeply committed to her work at SU, she harbors aspirations beyond her current role. One item on her bucket list is to expand her impact by visiting SU in different regions of South Africa and even serving SU on other continents. This demonstrates her dedication to making a difference in the lives of young people in different contexts.
With her creativity, passion, and heart for serving others, Jordan Benson is poised to inspire and uplift young hearts. We are excited to have her on the team in her new communications, and fieldwork role.
