CHICAGO (June 4, 2020)—For the past eleven years, as director of Covenant World Relief, David Husby served poor and marginalized people through CWR partners around the world. He will retire on June 30.
“Through Dave’s leadership, CWR has become the effective hands and feet of Jesus,” says Al Tizon, executive minister of Serve Globally. “If there is any face that reminds us of Jesus’s heart for the most vulnerable in the world, it is the face of our dear brother Dave.”
In his role, Husby worked to develop partnerships with on-the-ground national churches and organizations whose ministries are committed to addressing the spiritual, emotional, physical, social, and economic needs of people and communities. Through the work of CWR partners, the lives of individuals, families, and communities in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and the Caribbean have been transformed.
“I am filled with gratitude to God and to the Covenant Church for allowing me to serve,” Husby says. “I have seen how people who have suffered the effects of natural and human-caused disasters have been deeply cared for and enabled to regain stability in their lives. Through these programs, the good news of the kingdom has been announced in word and deed.”
A search for his replacement is underway, and Husby has agreed to assist with the transition, once a successor is named.
