Meet HAFF's Executive Committee in Haiti
While HAFF’s long-term goal was to have Haitians in positions of authority over the whole ministry, for many years we relied on Haitians leading the various programs. In the summer of 2011, after much prayer and the counsel of HAFF missionaries and key members of the Haitian staff, the Board of Directors approved a new leadership structure for the ministry in Haiti. Haitians who demonstrated strong
HAFF EC 2019 faith, maturity, and leadership skills moved into executive level leadership of HAFF alongside 3 US missionaries. Together they formed the Haitian-majority Executive Committee (EC). Eleven years later, only two of the original EC members still serve on the committee, but past EC members continue to advise the current committee who we believe God has appointed to lead HAFF into the future.
