Dr. Karen Cornies, Board Chair, welcomes John Head to his new role as Executive Director of MCC Ontario.

It is with abundant joy and thanksgiving that I announce that John Head has accepted the invitation of the MCC Ontario Board of Directors to assume the position of Executive Director of MCC Ontario, effective today.

In 2014 John came to MCCO as Associate Executive Director, focusing on operations. Since the departure of Rick Cober Bauman last fall, he has served seamlessly as interim Executive Director.  He brings to the role a deep faith and vast experience in organizational leadership that has been well demonstrated during his time at MCC Ontario, and especially evident over the past few months.

Last night the Board of Directors accepted the unanimous, wholehearted recommendation of the Executive Director Search Committee, following an eight-month search.  

Last summer, following consultation with conference leaders, MCC Ontario staff and leadership, the post was widely advertised, and potential candidates approached. Dozens of CV’s were reviewed, and ten talented candidates were interviewed.

In the end, John’s calm, steady strength, vision and leadership brought him the enthusiastic endorsement of the Search Committee.

As you read this, John is already at work leading MCC Ontario’s mission of relief, development and peace in the name of Christ.

Please join me in offering prayerful support to John, and God’s continued blessings upon MCC Ontario, and on the many lives it impacts so profoundly.

Dr. Karen Cornies, Chair
on behalf of the Board of Directors, MCC Ontario
