Pettett-Family-PicNew Executive Director for World Witness

The Board of World Witness is pleased to announce that Mr. Alex Pettett has been approved as the next Executive Director of World Witness, to replace the Rev. Dr. Frank Van Dalen (who will return to the field as pastor/counselor with the Evangelical Reformed Synod of Lithuania) as of January 1, 2015. Alex and his wife, Jamie, have served in Israel and Turkey for over seven years. Frank Van Dalen writes: “I couldn’t be more pleased about this choice. Alex brings strong managerial and relational skills. He is very creative and has a deep passion for missions. He has served on two fields and has seen the Lord’s blessing upon his labors. He is a faithful servant who proved himself in the First ARP Church, Gastonia, before going to the field, and has since demonstrated the skills needed for future leadership of World Witness. I am so grateful that the Lord is continuing to pour out His blessings on this outreach ministry of the ARP denomination.”
