CEAC Welcomes New Board Members

May. 16, 2014

by Joel Elowsky

At its recent Board meeting the CEAC added new three new board members to the CEAC Board who bring a wealth of experience with non-profits and a demonstrated commitment to the CEAC and its mission.

Dr. Robert G. Duffett, President of Eastern University since July 1, 2013, has served in a variety of leadership roles in Christian higher education for the past 27 years. The CEAC has been housed and sponsored at Eastern University since 2009. We are pleased to welcome Dr. Duffett to the Board and look forward to future collaboration with him and the Eastern University community.

Carrie Heddington, founder of the Good New Initiative, was also welcomed to the Board. Carrie's focus on spreading the Gospel has made her a sought after speaker both in the US and abroad. As the CEAC seeks to deepen the faith of African Christians, we look forward to partnering with Carrie and her vision for the Church.

Ron Nikkel served as President and CEO of Prison Fellowship for over 30 years. Now serving as President emeritus of Prison Fellowship, the CEAC Board invited Ron to serve on the CEAC Board to help extend our vision. His capacity for care and concern for those society has forgotten has extended beyond the borders of the US into a truly global concern.

We welcome all three of these members to our CEAC Board and thank them and all of our board members for their willingness to serve. We look forward to our future collaboration together in serving Africa's future through her past. To see the full board complement follow this link.
