A New Call on Life

June 24, 2022

Bob Marsh, Vice President of Advancement, Marketing, and Communications has faithfully served Elim Christian Services for over 18 years as a member of the Executive Leadership Team. Bob recently accepted the position of Director of Donor Relations at Breakthrough Urban Ministries, located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood of Chicago. Breakthrough’s mission is to partner with those affected by poverty to build connections, develop skills, and open doors of opportunity. Bob and his family are passionate supporters of both Elim and Breakthrough, and the Elim community in turn wishes Bob the best as he responds to this new call on his life.

Bob has made a significant impact on Elim and those we serve; he leaves big shoes to fill. That said, our commitment to being Christ-centered at Elim reminds us that God’s ways are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9), and so by God’s grace we give praise for this new opportunity for Bob; and for Elim.

Bob stated, “I will always have a special place in my heart for people with disabilities and their families. It has been an honor to serve both Elim participants and their families. I will be forever grateful for the ways that God has used Elim’s ministry to expand my awareness of and appreciation for people with disabilities.”

Because God has been faithful to Elim for almost 75 years, this is an opportunity to see what God will do next at Elim. Our formal search for Bob’s successor has already begun, and we are trusting God for that successor to be named no later than September 1. Your prayers for this effort are appreciate
