Vol 13 No. 5 Announcement of our New Executive Minister

Dear friends,

It is with great pleasure that our VP of Personnel and Programme, Kayely Rich, “guest writes” the newsletter today with her announcement of the appointment of our new Executive Minster, Rob Ogilvie, a dear friend and colleague.  More than enough said on my part.  I will let Kayely’s announcement speak for itself.  Next week we will catch up on the Board happenings.

Warmly,

In Christ,

Jeremy

 

NEW EXECUTIVE MINISTER

On behalf of the CBWC Board, it is my great pleasure to announce the hiring of our next Executive Minister, Rev. Rob Ogilvie. Rob currently serves as the BC/Yukon Regional Minister for the CBWC. Rob brings a strong, consistent faith and a passion for seeing the CBWC and its partners working together to see greater things happen for the Kingdom. Rob is described by many as being a collaborative leader who really cares deeply for others. Rob knows the CBWC well, having pastored in BC and SK prior to joining the CBWC staff. You will have the opportunity to welcome Rob to this new position and get to know him a bit better at our upcoming CBWC Gathering  May 25-27 (see cbwc.ca/assembly for details of this event).
 
At The Gathering, we also look forward to thanking Rev. Jeremy Bell for his for his commitment and countless hours of good work on our behalf. I will refrain from saying more at this time as Jeremy continues to thoughtfully wrap up his term as Executive Minister and we wish to support him in maintaining this focus. Jeremy will be completing his term on  June 30, 2017.
 
Rob will begin a period of orientation following The Gathering and will assume the full duties of the Executive Minister role on July 1, 2017. In the meantime, Rob will be working on finishing well in his current role and will be assisting the search committee in hiring our next BC/Yukon Regional Minister. Please be praying with us as we seek our next BC/Y Regional Minister and watch our website (cbwc.ca) for a job posting to be released soon. 

Please join us in prayer as we thank God for both Jeremy and Rob and their faithful service to God in our midst.  
 
Shalom,
Rev. Kayely Rich
CBWC Vice President, Personnel & Programme
