Children of Promise Announces Retirement of Development Director
Children of Promise announces the resignation of Dr. Charles Wanner (Chuck), Development Director since January 2011. Chuck is retiring from Children of Promise, but will continue serving in pastoral ministry.
Chuck has served over 40 years in ministry within the Church of God. As part of that rich tenure of service, Chuck has traveled extensively representing Children of Promise with churches, pastors, missions committees, and individuals across the United States the last three years. He has done a wonderful job of relating to donors and advancing the work of Children of Promise through giving. His pastor's heart, listening ear, and encouraging words will be missed by all of the Children of Promise community, both in the U.S. and abroad.
Thank you, Chuck, for your tireless efforts on behalf of children in need. You will be deeply missed. We pray God's blessings upon you and your family.
