Board of Directors
Our Board of Directors meets monthly to provide oversight and direction for the vision and mission of the Ministry. They provide prayer support for the staff, volunteers and families with whom we work. The Board of Directors is responsible for overseeing the policies and procedures of the ministry as well as writing position descriptions and have the final decision regarding interviewing and hiring.
There are 7 members on the Board of Directors, each bringing their own area of giftedness. Dona Sensenig, the Director of the Spanish Health Ministry, has worked among the Spanish speaking families of Southern Chester County since 1974. She has a great understanding and love for Hispanic families and a desire to share the Gospel with them. Chuck Lunden, a CPA and financial expert, contributes understanding and discernment regarding our financial decisions. Leigh Kelleher also has a background in business and contributes her insight and discernment in financial decisions. Addison Scott has experience in the field of technology, so his technical support and insight are helpful in an ever-changing technological age. Ruth Hershey brings a strong commitment of prayer support, and two retired nurses Lois Aldrich and Joyce Chance bring to the Board an understanding of the medical needs of our families. These 7 people represent six different evangelical churches in the greater Southern Chester County area.
