FAITH NEWS SERVICE – (Spokane, WA) — The Board of Directors of Partners International unanimously welcomes Bryson Vogeltanz as our new President and Chief Executive Officer. Vogeltanz brings with him a wealth of experience from his leadership roles with Passion Conferences, Passion City Church (Atlanta, Georgia), and other non-profits. As we step into this new era of ministry, we believe Partners International is strategically prepared to expand and deepen our vision of proclaiming the Gospel to every person in the least reached places. We believe Vogeltanz will also help cultivate greater avenues of mission engagement for churches and individuals in America.
“It was evident that God had prepared the heart and mind of Bryson for this role,” says Board Chair Kamesh Sankaran. “Having seen ministry in 66 countries in former roles, Bryson has developed a deep-rooted passion to bring the Gospel to the least reached places and has a strong conviction of the essential role of indigenous leaders in building the Church. We believe God has gifted him with a remarkable ability to tell their story of God’s work to the body of Christ here.”
Vogeltanz shares, “My heart’s desire is to use my gifting to propel the Gospel to reach the more than 2 billion people in the world who do not have access to hear about and respond to life in Jesus. I look forward and pray with great expectation for the opportunities that will come from serving with Partners International and the work God is doing in and through this long-standing mission organization.”
Many of our Ministry Partners throughout the 10/40 Window also share their excitement about Vogeltanz joining the Partners International family.
“The Maghreb Project joins the Partners International family in this celebration. May the Lord affirm the strength and calling given to Mr. Vogeltanz. Thank you for the offering of your life, time, and gifts to serve God’s Church, people, and communities around the world. May the Lord bless you and your family in this new season for His glory.” – Executive Director Esther, Maghreb Project, North Africa
“On behalf of BFM, we want to congratulate the Board of Partners International in making the decision of appointing a new President and CEO. We want to welcome Mr. Vogeltanz to our ever-expanding family as BFM and Partners International have been working for the welfare of Dalits in India since 1984.” – Archbishop Moses, BFM, India
