Presidential Search

Posted on | October 9, 2013 | Comments Off on Presidential Search

Dear Friend and Supporter of FAS:

Because you are a vital part of the Francis Asbury Society and its ministries, we want to keep you informed of significant steps in our leadership transition process. In recent months, our president Dr. Ron Smith has let us know that the Lord is leading him to return to a pastorate in the New Jersey Conference, which will also enable him to assist his parents in their time of need. This transition from the presidency of FAS to a pastorate in New Jersey will be phased in over the spring 2014.

In order to assist Dr. Smith during the transition and to ensure that the ministries and operations of FAS are carried forward with vitality and momentum – and upon Dr. Smith’s recommendation – the Board of Directors has appointed Rev. Stan Key as Operations Director during this transition period. In this position, Rev. Key will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and ministry oversight of FAS. His work with Dr. Smith in executive leadership of the Society will enable Dr. Smith to continue as president and concentrate his efforts on external relations such as development, fund raising, team building, visioning and assisting in the presidential transition process. Rev. Key comes to FAS as a highly qualified leader, having served successfully in a long term pastorate and effectively on the mission field. We are glad to have him on our FAS leadership team.

Additionally, in their recent meeting, the Board of Directors has appointed a presidential search committee to begin immediately moving forward in the process of selecting a new president. Rev. Dr. Gary George is the chair of this committee. An announcement for the presidential search process is enclosed. Please forward any suggestions and/or recommendations to the search committee at the address: (Please see the job posting below for further information.)

Thank you for supporting the Francis Asbury Society. Please keep Dr. Ron Smith, Rev. Stan Key, Dr. Gary George, the presidential search process, the Board of Directors, the ministry leaders, and the office staff in your prayers. In these days of cultural and spiritual change in our society, the message of the heart and life wholly devoted to God is vitally important.

With warmest regards,

Charlie D. Fiskeaux
Chair, Board of Directors
