This new year is bringing with it some change for the Canada West Mission Centre.
Over the past year and a half Debra Donohue has been fulfilling her long-standing duties of Administrative Assistant to the Mission Centre President and mission conference planning and management. In that time she has also taken on the addition of a new role as Creating Connection Director for British Columbia. This year Debra will be devoting herself full time to the Creating Connection Director position and will transition out of the Admin Assistant and mission conference responsibilities.
Debra and Steve have yet to work out the full details of this transition. Steve will take on many of the admin tasks until a successor is in place. Steve asks for your patience in the event of any “blips” in those tasks as we get a handle on all the tasks that may be involved. Detailed mission conference planning will be put on hold until a person is identified for that task.
A formal posting of responsibilities for the Admin Assistant is posted above. One person might fulfill both roles (as Debra has) or two persons might be appointed into the separate positions. Anyone who might be interested in either or both of these positions is invited to contact Steve. A timeline has not yet been established, but it would be good to have someone at least preparing to come into the admin position within a month or so.
Personal comments from Steve:
I cannot begin to thank Debra enough for the support she has provided to me in this position over the past five and a half years. She has represented the mission centre in that role very positively in her interactions with mission centre members and with other persons in other areas of the church, including church headquarters and the Canadian church offices. Her enthusiasm for mission conference has been amazing. These shoes will not be easy to fill.
As a Creating Connection Director Debra has done very well at introducing the concepts of the position to Canada West and to the BC congregations specifically. Her successes there are recognized by Kerry Richards in his role as Director of the Congregational Revitalization Program for Canada. Debra remains under the supervision of the Canada West Mission Centre while accepting guidance and direction from Kerry in the specifics of the Creating Connection initiative. Please join me in wishing Debra well in her continuing commitment to this work.
