A message from our new Executive Director, Denny Hydrick.
My family and I were humbled by the offer to join the ministry of Baptist Children’s Home and Family Services. We have prayed and sought God’s guidance throughout this process and have felt an overwhelming peace and excitement about joining His work in Illinois. We are reassured in this decision by having met a passionate and committed staff and Board members who have demonstrated a desire to continue their service to children and families through their daily work with BCHFS and as evidenced by their years of commitment to this ministry.
Recently, I read a verse I am sure I have read before, but it struck me as really defining the ministry opportunity I will have. 1 Chronicles 16:8 says, “Oh give thanks to the LORD, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples.” Truly, I am excited about this new role with BCHFS. To make known His deeds among the people will be such a humbling experience. I am eager to join the work!
Susanne and our kids will be making a new home in Carmi. Please feel free to drop an email, call or just come by the office sometime if you are in the area. I look forward to the opportunity to hear your stories and learn about your work with the Baptist Children’s Home. Thank you for your prayers, partnership, work and support of BCHFS.
For His Children,
BCHFS Executive Director
