Harrisburg, PA (PRWEB) September 12, 2013 -- On September 16, 2013, ABWE will host a presidential installation service to welcome its new president, Dr. Jim O’Neill.
Before joining ABWE in August, Jim served as the president and founder of the Center for Global Mission out of Chattanooga, Tenn., which equips emerging leaders to make a global impact for Jesus Christ. Previously, Jim spent more than two years at Tennessee Temple University serving as executive vice president and interim president, nine years serving as president of CrossWorld missions agency, and five years leading the academic missiology program at Liberty University. He and his wife, Sterling, also served 13 years as church planters in Asia.
Originally from Reading, Pa., Jim has two degrees in missiology, a doctorate from Western Seminary, a master's from Grace Theological Seminary, and a bachelor's degree from Liberty University.
“Dr. O’Neill is uniquely qualified to lead ABWE,” says Larry Green, Chairman of ABWE’s Board of Directors. “He is not only an experienced leader, he has a passion for developing the church’s next generation of global leaders. He has served with his wife in the mission field, trained missionaries and mentored church leaders from around the world. We’re excited about what the future will bring under his leadership.”
ABWE is excited to welcome the O’Neill family into the ABWE family at the presidential instillation service on Monday, September 16, 2013 at 7p.m. The event will take place at ABWE’s headquarters in Harrisburg, PA and will be followed by a dessert reception with Jim and Sterling.
