A children’s ministry has new leader

By December 23, 2003

USA (MNN) — It’s been around 62 years. And now, it’s under new leadership.

Terre Richie is the new Executive Director of CBH Ministries (formerly Children’s Bible Hour). Richie replaces Randall Heckman who stepped down to pursue other interests.

CBH currently produces Keys for Kids, a devotional for kids and Down Gilead Lane, a drama that’s currently being aired on a number of radio stations across the United States. Richie says her short-term focus will be on “Keys for Kids.”

She says, “We are going to work really hard for the first two or three months in marketing our Kids of Kids. That’s kind of our main-stay here. We really want to improve that inside and out. Improve the stories, update them. Make it look more like it’s for the year 2003-2004.”

While Richie is new to her position, the goals for CBH will remain the same, reaching young people with the Gospel. She says young people are facing incredible difficulties. “It’s so hard for us to think of all the tragedies that are happening to children today because our hearts are right there with them. We want to go out and help them and be a help to their families. Our job is to do the best job we can to get the Word out.”

However, funding issues are a concern. Richie says, “As in every non-profit ministry, we’re suffering a little bit financially, but God is meeting our every need. Pray for our financial needs. Pray for unity all the way around. And, that God would show us where we need to go.”
