From the Board Chair: A New Season at EduDeo Ministries

On behalf of the EduDeo Ministries Board of Directors, I want to share an update on an upcoming transition.

After seventeen faithful years of service to EduDeo Ministries, we are saying farewell to Executive Director, Hank de Jong. After months of prayer and discernment, Hank is following God’s leading to accept a position at Redeemer University. We thank God for his years of service to our organization – under his leadership, we have grown tremendously, and we praise God for how He used Hank and his gifts over these last seventeen years. During his remaining time with us, Hank will assist the Board in the search for a new Executive Director, and his role with EduDeo will conclude on July 31, 2020. 

While we begin the search for a replacement, our current Operations Director and long-serving staff member, Phil Beck, will serve as Interim Executive Director. 

The timing of this decision may feel bittersweet – we are excited for Hank and his willingness to follow God’s leading, but we know this is a hard time to walk through transition. As a world, we are living through daily changes and many big unknowns. But through it all, we know God is faithful, and we have seen His goodness to us as an organization. This goodness has been particularly tangible in these last few months, as He continues to bless our organization with a strong team, passionate international partners, and faithful supporters. 

We wish Hank the Lord’s blessings as he continues to fulfill his calling in God’s kingdom. We trust God’s leading of EduDeo Ministries in this next season and we covet your prayers through this transition.

Thank you for your ongoing support as we advance Christ-centred education for children worldwide.
