CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) - The Board of Directors of Love in the Name of Christ announced Wednesday they have appointed John Drake McGowan as chief executive officer.
Love INC says Eva Hillis will remain with the organization as executive director concentrating on service delivery, volunteer recruitment and management.
"To address the increased demand," said Jeff Fanger, chairman of the board. "God is calling us to move into our next phase of ministry: the implementation of services that provide our clients with opportunities to gain the skills and knowledge they need to be financially independent, all within a framework of building relationships that point to Christ. The board is proud to announce the addition of McGowan as our chief executive officer, whose knowledge, skills and abilities will be a great asset as we transition from providing charitable compassion to developmental compassion."
According to Love INC, McGowan recently finished the requirements for his Masters in Nonprofit Management, adding to the skill set that makes him the right person to join the team of staff and dedicated volunteers.
