Dear International Commission Partner,

             It is with great pleasure that I announce that the IC Board of Directors voted unanimously Monday, Feb 6th to call Brent Edwards as the Interim President.  The board feels that Brent is the right person for this position and has full confidence in his ability to do the job following the recent resignation of IC President Randy Adkisson.  Brent has served as the VP of Development at International Commission prior to this appointment and He will continue his responsibilities in that area.

             Brent will be working with an excellent group of Vice Presidents.  They are empowered to do their ministry to their greatest ability under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.  Mark Hill is our VP of Mobilization, Rick Pauly is VP of Operations, and Rodney Cavett is new Interim VP of Area Strategy Team (AST).  Long-time consultant Andy Read will continue to serve as an advisor to this Leadership Team.

             I want to encourage you to be in prayer for IC and for Brent as he assumes this position of leadership.  God is in control and we know He is on His throne. He will guide us as we allow Him through this transition.   IC has always been a God Thing!  The miracles of His work through the years using flawed human beings like us never ceases to amaze me!  It has been my privilege to be a part of it.  With that stated, I covet your daily prayers.  I cannot lead the board unless the Holy Spirit empowers me with wisdom and stamina.  I am humbly our Lord’s servant.

             I expect 2017 to be a great year as we turn the corner in many ways in this ministry!  Thank you for all you do to support International Commission and the sacrifices you make for the Kingdom.

On Mission with you for our Lord,

Mark Rindels

Chairman of the Board
