Bulus Bossan to Join IET

By IET Communications

Bulus Silas Bossan, the current Regional Director for Africa, will be joining the International Executive Team (IET) in January 2019. Bulus has been serving as Regional Director of the Navigator work in Africa since 2012.

“It has been a privilege to work alongside Bulus, to see the work in Africa grow under his leadership,” says Alan Ch’ng, the IET member who focuses on Africa. “Bulus brings with him a deep love for the Lord, breadth of experience, clarity of vision, and a giftedness in developing people.

Bulus and his wife, Salama, are Nigerians who reside in Nairobi, Kenya, They have been involved with The Navigators since they were university students. After a personal crisis in his 20s, Bulus joined a Navigator campus ministry, where he was discipled. Navigators at the same university also discipled Salama.

“Africa’s struggle with hardship, pain and evil has helped me gain a deeper appreciation of the critical needs of the human heart: the struggle with emptiness, fear and guilt,” says Bulus. “I am convinced that God alone is the answer to all three.”

Working internationally with the IET, Bulus says he looks forward to coming alongside Navigator laborers and leaders to bring scriptural counsel and personal encouragement, among other strategic contributions. Although there are contingencies, he and Salama plan to move to Colorado Springs. They have four adult daughters who will be living in Nigeria.
