For Immediate Release

Kenneth A. Behr has announced his resignation as president of ECFA.

"We are thankful for the contributions Ken has made to ECFA during his tenure," said Michael Batts, chairman of the board of directors. "He has stretched us to more fully utilize technology in providing membership and educational services, and he has generated a number of ideas about the growth of our membership base."

"Ken has also helped raise ECFA’s profile in the public sector," added John Brown, a member of ECFA’s board and past chairman. "He has spread the message of ECFA and financial integrity in many venues throughout the country. We wish Ken all the best as he pursues God’s next calling on his life."

Dan Busby, senior vice president of ECFA, has been named by the board of directors as acting president while the board engages in a search process for ECFA’s new president.

"ECFA is a unique organization and we will be seeking a unique individual to serve as its president," said Batts. "We know God has a specific person in mind, and it is our job in the days ahead to prayerfully and carefully seek out that person. ECFA’s board of directors remains steadfast in its commitment to promote financial integrity in America’s Christian ministries."
