BOARD OF DIRECTORS

JULIE SCHULZE, FOUNDER AND CHAIRMAN

After moving to the Far East in 2005, Julie’s background in education, religious studies and lay counseling led to the formation of New Song Personal Development Resources. Following 15+ years of co-creating original curriculum and Bible studies, overseeing strategic implementation in places as diverse as orphanages and universities, and, allocating resources to the local church, Julie was grateful to make most of New Song’s materials freely available online. Julie currently sings her "new song” with her husband and two children in the Middle East.
