One of Canada's oldest missions announces new Executive Director Dave
Addison takes the helm on December 2, 2013.
TORONTO, Nov. 28, 2013 /CNW/ - At its AGM on November 27, 2013, Toronto
City Mission's (TCM) Board of Directors welcomed Dave Addison as its
new Executive Director effective December 2, 2013. Dave Addison is an
experienced business executive, spiritual leader, and effective
communicator, and brings a unique combination of corporate experience,
ministry service and infectious energy to TCM as the organization
begins its next phase of work in transforming families in high priority
communities in Toronto.
Board of Directors Chair Houston Cheng said Addison is the perfect
choice to continue TCM's strong voice in improving the lives of
families impacted by poverty in Toronto. "We believe Dave is the right
leader in carrying out TCM's strategic goals," said Cheng. "Dave can
parlay his vast leadership and ministry experience to make positive
changes in the lives of children, youth and families. Dave has a heart
for helping people among us who are in need, and we look forward to the
experience and energy he will bring to TCM."
Addison is well-known in the local ministry community, currently serving
as Trustee at St. Paul's Anglican Church on Bloor Street and as a
long-time volunteer with Community Centre 55. As TCM's incoming
Executive Director, Addison says, "I feel so blessed to have the
opportunity to serve God, TCM and the needy within this city."
Addison takes the reins from Andrew Schell, whose eight years of
dedicated service helped transform TCM into a focused ministry. TCM
staff work with community partners to offer preventative and
transformational programs to equip children, youth and adults to make
good life decisions and to create positive, lasting change. Since
1879, TCM has impacted over 65,000 lives and operates sites in
Jane-Finch, Kingston-Galloway, St James Town, Steeles-L'Amoreaux,
Victoria Village, and Willowtree.
