Friends United Meeting offers its warmest congratulations to Joyce Ajlouny on her appointment as the next General Secretary of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC). Joyce has served as the Director of Ramallah Friends School since 2004, and in that capacity has shepherded the school through a period of exceptional growth. She and FUM had been anticipating that she would move into a role of Advancement and Alumni Relations at some point during 2017, once a new Head of School for RFS had been identified. However, the opportunity to serve through AFSC arose as a clear call for Joyce, and FUM is graciously releasing her for that new ministry. Joyce will remain committed to the work of Ramallah Friends School—as an alumnus, as a parent of alumnae, and as a member of the Ramallah Friends Meeting.
FUM invites all Friends to join in celebrating Joyce’s new direction and praying for her ministry to thrive at AFSC. We also invite you to pray for FUM as we search for a new Head of School to take over from Joyce, and as we adjust our plans for the Advancement and Alumni Relations work.
