Meet Ben Turner, new president of Just Hope International

March 15, 2013

The opportunity for full-time service to the poorest of the poor in the world is humbling. I am excited to be a part of an organization whose approach to this avenue of service is one of empowering people rather than creating dependence. At times in the past, I have questioned the true impact on those being served when I have volunteered with a variety of organizations. What you have known for some time as a supporter of Just Hope International is what I now know and believe: Just Hope “gets it” in terms of effecting lasting change in the lives of those we serve.

I come to Just Hope International with a sense of inadequacy, but I believe that as we work hard each day, God will provide all that is needed to meet the challenges that lie ahead. I have been blessed with a compassion for people, and I have been allowed to develop business experience during my career. To honor God and honor the generous support of Just Hope International supporters, I hope to combine these gifts in a way that will make a lasting difference in the lives we are called to help.
