Welcome Executive Director, Jeff Ware
As Hope Renewed continues to grow, it is important for us to build a strong leadership team on the ground. With that, I’m excited to announce two changes in leadership in Guatemala. Ashley Williams will be shifting her responsibilities to focus specifically on Hope Renewed’s for-profit entity, Hope Renewed Enterprises. Under Ashley’s leadership, this business has grown significantly and has great potential to support the organization inthe future.
Building on Ashley’s work on the non-profit side, and joining us as our new Executive Director, will be Jeff Ware. Jeff graduated from DePauw University with a BA in Spanish and a Master’s Degree in Education. He holds an Mdiv. from Trinity International University, and is currently finishing his Educational Doctorate in curriculum, instruction, and leadership. Jeff taught high school Spanish for almost 30 years and earned distinction as a top 30 Golden Apple Finalist in the state of Illinois. He has also taught education in Trinity’s Reach to Teach program. Jeff is an ordained minister and has served as a youth pastor at two churches. Jeff has extensive experience in Latin America, having served in 9 different countries with organizations such as Amigos de las Americas, Habitat for Humanity, and Adventures in Mission. He has led mission trips since 1999 and greatly enjoys helping people process their cultural and spiritual experiences as they serve in missions. Jeff moved to Guatemala just a couple of weeks ago and is already moving full speed ahead.
Please join me in welcoming Jeff Ware to Guatemala and to the Hope Renewed team. I would like to ask for continued prayers for both Ashley and Jeff as they move into their new roles.
