President's Letter about Retirement

Jim's Retiring

I've notified our Board of Directors that I will be retiring at the end of this year. For the past 12 years, I've had the joy of working with the best people to encourage the study of God's Word. Thanks to all who work to make EBS such a wonderful organization.
 
I've struggled with the question of retirement for sometime. I so enjoy the opportunity to serve, but time doesn't stop for anyone and last month I turned 69. Like it or not, it is time for me to move on. My wife, Chris, is already retired and we have seven grandchildren under nine years old within an hours drive, so we are surrounded by the excitement of little people.
 
Please pray with us as we search for the next leader for EBS. You may know someone for whom this would be a good fit. Attached is a link to a document listing what the Board is looking for in a leader. God has sustained the organization over the past 40+ years so we believe He is already preparing the next leader.
