Mr Sholl has been involved in CMS for over 20 years. He spent 12 years as a mission worker based in Mexico with his wife Sarah and three children, and has worked as a regional mission director with the organisation since 2021. 

Mr Sholl said he looked forward to the role of international director, and playing a part in the exciting work God was doing around the world. 

“God is growing his church in all corners of the world,” Mr Sholl said. 

“At CMS we have the privilege of being used by him to play a part in that, and I look forward to the joys and challenges that wonderful task brings.”  

The international director’s role is to facilitate the development of vision and strategy for the CMS fellowship, and build strong relationships between CMS and the churches and organisations who serve as missionaries around the world. 

CMS Australia board chair James Oakley said Mr Sholl’s vision, energy and compassion convinced the board he was the right person under God to lead CMS Australia into his next season. 

In its announcement CMS Victoria said under Mr Sholl’s leadership more than 1000 people in 15 countries across Latin America and Europe studied Bible courses through the Spanish translation of the Moore College Preliminary Theological Certificate. 

Mr Sholl will succeed the Reverend Canon Peter Rodgers in the role as international director.
