News & Bulletins...
This new year bring many new beginnings to Open Arms Mission, including a change of leadership. Jerry Vanderklok, who has faithfully served as CEO for 15 years, has retired from that position. Melissa Kirkpatrick has assumed the role of CEO effective January 1. We are praying for Melissa in her new role and responsibilities.
Jerry is not leaving us completely. He is now the Ministry Campus Manager. He is looking forward to seeing the Ministry Campus grow as he invests more time into that location and its programs. We are praying for Jerry during this transition. If you would like to help Jerry see some of his visions for the Ministry Campus come to fruition, give him a call at 905-321-2502 to let him know you would like to volunteer. At our Christmas banquet, we had the opportunity to honour Jerry for his service. There was a standing ovation and he was really moved. John Gibbins, president of the Board, presented Jerry with a gift.
