The board of directors of Encompass World Partners met in emergency session on Tuesday, April 6, 2020, according to a statement released by David Lawson, president. Among matters discussed and actions taken was the decision to postpone the search for a new Executive Director.
The board has requested that Dave Guiles extend his tenure as executive director with the responsibility to lead the agency through the current crisis to a period of greater stability. The length of this extension and new discussions about reengaging the succession process will be explored during the October 2020 Board Meetings.
Dave and Sue have graciously agreed to postpone their plans for a shift in ministry assignment and have accepted the Board’s invitation to remain in their current roles. Please join in prayer for them as they work through the personal and ministry implications of these decisions.
