A Personal Reflection from Ray Woodard

Ray Woodard, Outreach Canada's Board Chairman, reflects on this season of thanksgiving in regards to OC's current season of transition as we move towards the future. 

"This season of thanksgiving holds special significance for me as I reflect on God’s work within Outreach Canada ... I have seen the creativity and dedication of our missionaries, who are continuing the work based on their calling from our heavenly Father. Earlier this year I had the opportunity to experience the joy, creativity, and support of our leaders, from across Canada, as we met together and planned during our annual retreat. I continue to see this as we meet monthly to pray for His guidance."

OC Director's Blog: September 2023 - LeaderSHIFT

Since the beginning of the year, we have been working through a leadership transition at Outreach Canada. After fifteen years as Executive Director, Craig Kraft has moved to a new role as the Director for Global Collaboration for our OC Global Alliance. Over the past fifteen years we have grown significantly from about twenty staff and volunteers in 2008 to over one hundred and forty in 2022. Our Board has elected to take an intentional transition time before hiring a new Executive Director. This will provide time for assessment, evaluation, adjustment, and alignment before a new Director is appointed. We have formed a LeaderSHIFT team to lead us through this time of transition...
