LOUISVILLE — The Presbyterian Mission Agency Board (PMAB) today issued a news release saying it has temporarily suspended the search for a new executive director after “interviews for the position late this fall did not conclude with an accepted offer.” The board will resume its search pending results of reports to General Assembly 223 (2018) from the Way Forward Commission and the All Agency Review Committee, which will be released by Feb. 16, 2018.

Dave Crittenden, appointed acting executive director Sept. 13, 2017, following Tony De La Rosa’s resignation, will lead the agency until next summer’s General Assembly.

“We have every reason to be optimistic, on behalf of the PMA and the denomination, that the search will be successful in identifying an exceptional executive director and every reason to be confident about the future of PC(USA) mission and ministry,” said Dr. Nancy Ramsay, chair of the search committee.
