Where did we come from?
The Department of Missions and Evangelism was fully funded in 1987. The first full-time Chairman was the late V. Rev. Peter E. Gillquist. After Fr. Peter's retirement in 2011, the V. Rev. Michael Keiser was appointed the new Chairman. Fr. Michael served for five years until his retirement in 2016 when the V. Rev. John D. Finley was appointed the new Chairman. At the same time, V. Rev. Joseph Huneycutt was appointed the new Vice Chairman.
