Harry Gill headshotIn January, Harry Gill was honored at the VEF Board of Directors Retreat upon his retirement after 8 years of service to churches and preachers around the Commonwealth. As you can imagine, there was plenty of laughter and stories to summarize his time as the Director of Church Resources.

During his tenure with the VEF, Harry was instrumental developing two critical programs that significantly changed the scope of service the VEF provides to preachers as they lead their churches. The VEF’s Fusion Groups provide a peer-learning environment that challenge preachers to continually develop their ministry skills in an ever changing culture.

A team of VEF trained and certified Ministry Coaches provide a 1:1 coaching relationship that help ministers become more effective in their leadership positions. Harry also served as the interim Minister for congregations in Waynesboro, Smithfield and Bumpass while with the VEF. His wisdom and advice during the hiring process coupled with his solid Biblical preaching each week helped stabilize these churches during their time of transition.

Harry will be missed not only for the incessant humor and wisdom he has for preachers but for the contagious joy he brings to ministry. Thanks, Harry, you’re an inspiration to us all!
