The Anglican Relief and Development Fund is honored to welcome Canon William E. Deiss as our new Executive Director as of July 1st, 2014. Canon Deiss brings a wealth of experience to his new role with a background in both international business and ministry at the Falls Church Anglican, where he served as Parish Administrator for over 19 years. He holds a BS in Aeronautical Engineering from Princeton University and an MS in Industrial Engineering from the University of Toledo. Previously, Canon Deiss served as the Chairman of ARDF’s Board of Trustees for three years.
“It’s more than an honor to be called to serve the Anglican Relief and Development Fund as Executive Director,” Canon Bill said. “It is a lifetime opportunity to be part of something spiritually significant in the lives of so many people worldwide.”
“Over the last ten years, this Fund has established itself as a strong mission arm of the worldwide Anglican Church, serving over a million of the poorest of the poor. ARDF exemplifies the unity of the worldwide Anglican Communion, working together, investing in sustainable development projects that serve people in great need and show God’s love to all involved. ARDF knows God is pleased when we obey by loving, giving and serving the poor, enabling them to live more sustainable, holistic and contributing lives. In addition ARDF assists people after natural or man-made disasters through the local church.”
ARDF’s mission is to work within the worldwide Anglican Communion to maximize life change in some of the most challenging parts of the world for the sake of Christ.
