On April 1, 2014, Leadership Ministries Worldwide (LMW) announced that Dave Worland would be the organization’s new President and CEO. Prior to joining the LMW team, Dave served for 15 years as the Executive Vice President for the National Christian Foundation.
“Dave’s unique skill sets, extensive management experience in the non-profit sector coupled with his financial acumen, make him the right person as we continue to move forward at LMW,” said Richard Bethea, LMW Board Chairman.
Dave and Sally, his wife of 30 years, are the proud parents of four married children (two sons and two daughters), one grandchild with another due this October.
In the last 90 days Dave has worked closely with the board to align LMW’s purpose, mission, vision and strategic goal. The “strategic goal” is a God-sized opportunity. LMW intends to place Outline Bible Resources in the hands of one million leaders and equip them to present the life changing Gospel to millions more.
Recently Dave outlined his operational priorities and projects for LMW which included a stronger emphasis on establishing new channels and networks for the sale of our signature resource POSB as well as our other resources. To that end, LMW is finalizing negotiations with LOGOS, a company that provides on-line access to books and libraries for pastors, teachers, scholars and seminary students.
Dave is also shepherding LMW with other priorities including a renewed emphasis on sales and marketing materials, increased customer communication through our newsletter, The Expositor, updating the servers and computers, realigning the international strategies, conducting a pilot project for a new and potentially more efficient way to translate our materials, and making preparation for banquets this fall in Florence, SC and Chattanooga, TN
