Taking next steps into a promising future

Greetings from Sports Outreach!

While the June newsletter announced changes in the leadership at Sports Outreach, this month’s issue shares additional developments pertaining to our Lynchburg team. And speaking of development, Sports Outreach would like to welcome Wendy Adams as our Chief Relationship Officer (CRO). Wendy comes to us as an accomplished donor advocate and bridge builder. Her tenured experience in non-profit development is grounded in her love for people. She is a catalyst in developing connections between people that share common goals and visions. According to Wendy, Lynchburg will be home base, but she is eager to meet you! Therefore, don’t be surprised if she calls and says, “Hi, I’m in the neighborhood, how about a cup of coffee?”

While mentioned briefly last month, we wanted to share further about Sal Ferlise, our Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Since 2011 he has served in varying capacities with Sports Outreach, most recently as COO and CFO. When asked to describe his professional capacity or calling Sal will state that he is a dot connector. Sal loves to see organizations achieve their God-given purpose by helping them function healthily and strive toward excellence. Sports Outreach board chairman, Cliff Lundberg, says of Sal, “As a long-time business executive myself, I have been impressed by witnessing Sal’s ability to make good judgments and quick collaborative management decisions. More importantly, he has a heart for people and ministry that he brings everywhere he goes.” Sal is humbled to be leading the mission and, given his heart for people and ability to motivate others, we are confident Sal will be used by God to guide Sports Outreach for years to come.
