1-7-14 NAD Strengthens Its Response to Local Communities
|L-R: Sung Kwon, Kati Britton, Maitland DiPinto, and Wynelle Stevens|
In December the NAD ACS board voted the following decisions for leadership:
Sung Kwon will serve as the Executive Director of ACS, focusing on leadership development, transformational evangelism and urban ministry.
Working with Kwon will be Maitland DiPinto, who will serve as Director of Community Engagement and Development. His responsibilities will be to oversee Community Development, HFH (formerly Ingathering) and the Tutoring/Mentoring Program.
Wynelle Stevens has been promoted from administrative assistant to the position of Assistant Director of ACS and will be working on Elder Care as well as Internal Management and Operations. Joining her will be Kati Britton who will serve as a Communication Assistant.
Several other regional ACS leaders will play instrumental roles in the training and coordination of the many volunteers who are the backbone of the ACS network throughout the Division.
“Truly God has blessed our journey in many ways and I am looking forward to continually strengthening the ACS ministry with the new team members,” says Sung Kwon, ACS executive director. “I also want to express my deepest gratitude towards the NAD administration for their support of ACS ministry and desire to expand the scope of compassion ministries in NAD.”
NAD ACS and its partner ADRA Canada, respond to the local needs of communities where help is needed in recovering from natural disasters, in training and educating new immigrants, providing food and clothing assistance to those in financial trouble and serving as Christ’s hands here on earth.
NAD ACS will also be looking at ways that it can expand its relationship with ADRA International as they respond to the needs and challenges that face the North American Division territory.
