Welcoming our new Chief Executive

Charles MaazWe are delighted to announce the appointment of Charles Maasz as Glasgow City Mission’s new Chief Executive. Charles is known to many of us in his current role as the Pastoral Chef at our city centre project.

Charles comes from a background in pioneer ministry with the Baptist Union, hospitality and property. He has a BSc Hons in Land Economics and a BD Hons in Theology and Pastoral Care.

Shaw Anderson, Chair of our Board says, “We look forward to the creative and visionary leadership Charles will bring as we embark on our next five-year strategy – to see our city and its people flourish. 

“With a diversity and breadth of skills, qualifications, professional and lived experience, the Board is convinced of God’s call on Charles’ life to lead Glasgow City Mission into our next stages of ministry and development.”

Charles says, “I’ve done diverse things in my career but as Chief Executive of Glasgow City Mission I see a way of unifying these strands in a way which will bring kingdom value to the organisation. From volunteering here to being part of the staff – I’ve taken great pride in being part of what Glasgow City Mission does.

“Whenever I talk about this place, there’s great enthusiasm for what we do here. I hope we can build on that base of good will and with the help of the Holy Spirit, move forwards with passion and purpose.”

Please join with us in praying for Charles as he takes up his new position.
