Board of Directors
The volunteer board of directors works collaboratively with our Myanmar leadership to set the strategic direction for the mission. Under the board guidelines of care for vulnerable children, we nuture existing ministries and strategically expand these ministries. We develop partnerships with churches, foundations, parachurch organizations and individuals to further a holistic approach in spreading the Gospel in Myanmar.
