Clark Ivey (President) and Louise Ivey (Secretary-Treasurer) announced their intention to retire from CWO, effective December 31, 2017. A search committee was formed to identify replacements for these positions. As a decision was not reached by the end of 2017, the CWO Board of Directors introduced the following resolutions – Extension of Term in Office for President and Extension of Term in Office for Secretary and Treasurer. The resolutions passed unanimously and all business of CWO is being handled without interruption. We wish to express our gratitude to Clark and Louise for their vision and service since the beginning of Compassion World Outreach. Because of their leadership, CWO has experienced tremendous growth and has expanded to include many more countries for pastoral training. We know that they will continue to be involved with this ministry, but also hope they will enjoy retirement and new experiences.
