Answer – Summer 2016
One of the things that makes Need Him Global unique is not just the creative ways of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through media but offering people the chance to have a live discussion about what it means. The second of our core pillars is answering those people seeking to know Jesus. We are quick to credit our volunteers for being the lifeline that allows us to meet the lost and share the Gospel. For the past three years, Christine Tijerina has managed our Volunteer Services department. Her primary focus was on recruiting, training, supporting and praying for those volunteers. Christine recently got married and relocated to Ohio with her new husband.
As we considered how to replace Christine, we took that opportunity to also evaluate all aspects of ministry response performance, our technology architecture, and the strategic plans for engaging those seeking biblical and spiritual answers. It led us to create the new position of Director of Response. This position is responsible for managing all volunteers as well as Resident Leaders. This person will also manage our response across all types of technology in order to position the ministry effectively for taking advantage of new opportunities.
After a long and thorough search process, the Lord connected us with Chris Schultz. He joined the ministry team prior to Christine’s departure in order to enhance the transition. Prior to coming on board with Need Him Global, Chris spent the past 32 years in the Financial Services industry with GE Capital, Coopers and Lybrand and Southwest Federal Savings. He served in various capacities including Operations, Risk Management, along with Portfolio and Asset Management.
Chris is married with four children. He has served as a bible study leader for the past 27 years and has coached and mentored young people for over 19 years as part of the Home School Athletic Association. Chris is a firm advocate of knowing “why we believe what we believe” and has a passion to build up our youth to “Walk in Truth” while “Standing against Lies”.
Chris has shared that it was over a year ago that he and his wife began to feel that God was preparing him for something with more kingdom significance. Since joining the Need Him Global team Chris quickly brought his experience to bear fruit within our training curriculum, systems, and internal processes. “I am amazed at what God is doing and how much gets done through this ministry. I am excited to be here and can sense how there is eternal purpose and meaning behind all we are doing.” We ask for your prayers for all Chris is doing and that you will join us in welcoming him to the team.
