Roger Williams Lives Transformed
 

Roger Williams

believed in the future of Mount Hermon and faithfully served as the President and CEO from September, 1993 until September, 2014, when he went home to be with the Lord. He succumbed to complications from the cancer that he called “his insidious dance partner.” Despite his pain, he handled the choreography with grace and transparency. His courage, cheer and selflessness made an indelible impression on thousands of people.

Roger will be remembered for his many personal and professional accomplishments, but mostly he will be remembered for how he loved Jesus and loved people.

We gratefully honor Roger and glorify God, who blessed us with his friendship and leadership.

Dear Friend of Mount Hermon,

As you know, this has been a season of unexpected grief as we said good-bye to our President and CEO, Roger Williams. His turn for the worst in August came as a surprise, after he spent most of the summer teaching seminars, meeting with donors about the envisioned future, and enthusiastically engaging in moving the ministry of Mount Hermon forward. Roger loved Mount Hermon and we loved him! He will be sorely missed.

We thank the Lord that he allowed Roger to serve as our visionary and capable leader for more than twenty years. On October 26 we had a wonderful celebration of his life and legacy. If you were unable to attend, but would like to share in that celebration, you can watch the service or the video tribute using the links below.

Over the last 20 years, the Lord enabled Mount Hermon to reach hundreds of thousands of people with the message that Jesus loves them. Along the way Roger managed to attract, mentor and retain capable and godly men and women to serve in key leadership positions. He brought us together as a cohesive team, and has led us to a shared vision for the future of Mount Hermon. I believe this strong leadership will carry us through this time of transition with no loss of focus or momentum.

Please keep us in your prayers during this critical time, as our board seeks and selects our next leader. As you prayerfully consider your year-end giving, I humbly ask that you pause to remember Mount Hermon—a place where people encounter Jesus in ways that unmistakably transform their lives. Would you allow your gift to reflect both your gratitude to the Lord for Roger’s legacy, and your strong support for this ministry during this time of transition?

We would be so encouraged to know that you are with us, and we will carefully steward your investment to allow God’s love and grace to transform the lives of his children.

Gratefully,

JR Loofbourrow
Director of Advancement
