New director for Missions Resource Network
Missions Resource Network has named Dan Bouchelle as its new executive director. The 12-year-old ministry, based in Bedford, Texas, assists churches in mission efforts. In recent years the ministry has helped equip mission teams for Europe and other parts of the globe.
Bouchelle has served for nine years as senior minister for the Central Church of Christ in Amarillo, Texas. He also serves as adviser to the board of Continent of Great Cities, a church-planting ministry to Latin America.
Bouchelle succeeds Bob Waldron, Mission Resource Network’s founding director, who will serve in another capacity on the staff.
“When it comes to global missions, MRN is the local church’s best friend,” Bouchelle said. “We will not do alone what can better be accomplished together.”
Barry Packer, chairman of Mission Resource Network’s board said that Bouchelle’s “passion for the Lord’s church, vision for kingdom matters, and collaborative spirit give us great expectation for this young ministry’s future.”
Waldron, a former missionary to Guatemala, said, “I have long prayed for God’s direction for the board to locate the right person to take this ministry to the next level. Dan is that man.”
Bouchelle earned his Doctor of Ministry, Master of Divinity, and Master of Arts degrees from Abilene Christian University. He serves on the board of directors for Amarilo-based Christian Relief Fund. He is author of “When God Seems Absent: Studies in Ruth and Esther,” published by ACU Press, and “The Gospel Unleashed” and “The Gospel Unhindered,” both published by College Press.
Bouchelle and his wife, Amy, have three children.
FeedbackDan I know your dedication to the Lord. Yuor usefulness to this organization will be a blessing to many because you have labored so hard in preparing yourself to be useful to the Lord. A man like me can appreciate that preparedness because of my helplesness and not being able to do many things because of being uneducated. May God bless all your efforts and add to your wisdom and may the Lord see to it that:
“The church grows as God causes it to grow.” May he use you greatly Dan.
