Jerry White, chairman of the board of directors of the Christian Management Association, announced this month that John Pearson, CMA’s president/CEO since 1994, is resigning his position, effective Dec. 31, 2005. Pearson is launching a new consulting firm in 2006 to serve ministries, churches and associations. He has served as CEO of three associations for the last 25 years and told the CMA board that he will remain one of CMA’s greatest cheerleaders in the years ahead. White has appointed a search committee to look for the next president/CEO of the association. Christian Management Association, founded in 1976, serves more than 3,500 leaders and managers from more than 1,500 Christian organizations and growing churches in the U.S. and Canada. CMA’s annual conference will be held in Long Beach, CA, April 25-28, 2005. Mark Holbrook of the Grace Brethren church in Orange, CA (featured in the May/June 2004 issue of FGBC World), is chairing the search committee to replace Pearson.
