...hardly a surprise.
If our North American Mission Board was, as many labeled it, dysfunctional, then surely there is an expectation that serious changes are needed to restore it to health. Kevin Ezell the new CEO, is wasting no time making changes.
Not everyone is happy, hardly something that is a surprise.
The concept of cutting NAMB Alpharetta HQ personnel by one-fourth was quickly introduced and is being implemented.
Not everyone is happy, again, hardly a surprise.
One trustee has resigned citing the personnel cuts. Seems that three of the people who took early retirement, and it hasn’t been stated that any of these were forced, are members of his church.
I have complained about NAMB for years, particularly their repeated embarrassments with leadership. I don’t recall anyone saying that their people were not good folks who did conscientious work.
The Great Commission Task Force, ratified by the convention, made it plain that major changes should be made at NAMB and here we are presented with some of them.
Hardly a surprise.
Ezell is like the new head football coach. Let him get his team, his program together and see if they can have some success. I haven’t heard anyone complaining that NAMB’s problem was that they didn’t allocate enough personnel or resources to their headquarters.
I suppose there is a lot more than most of us know but I’m willing to give him room and time to make it work.
