Dave Crittenden, who has served as acting director of the Presbyterian Mission Agency since mid-September 2017, will leave that position at the end of April.
Kathy Francis, the agency’s director of communications, said Crittenden – who was named acting director when interim executive director Tony De La Rosa resigned – had planned to stay in the job through General Assembly in June, but is leaving sooner “so that he can attend to some serious though not critical health issues.”
A search committee of the Presbyterian Mission Agency Board that is looking for a new executive director for the Presbyterian Mission Agency is continuing its work, Francis said.
Another change: Paul Moretti, who had been brought on as acting director of shared services for the Presbyterian Mission Agency, has departed. Moretti had been hired on a contract basis after Earline Williams, deputy executive director and chief financial officer of the Presbyterian Mission Agency, resigned in late 2017.
Francis said the Presbyterian Mission Agency ended the contract with the temporary service that employed Moretti.
The agency will hold off on selecting a new chief financial officer, Francis said, to allow the new Presbyterian Mission Agency executive director, when that person is selected, to make that hiring decision.
