OM Arts is pleased to say hello to Dave McKissick! His start date is Wednesday, May 1.
As the new Arts Catalyst for Oceania / North America – he will be responsible for stewarding the ministry partnerships OM Arts has within ONA. These relationships are primarily the OM fields in ONA. But he will also be relating to churches, schools and other ministries with artistic emphases throughout the area.
Through his focused attention on these relationships, we have high hopes that together we will be able to mobilize that many more artists, leaders of artists and funding to see vibrant communities of Jesus followers among the least reached.
Dave comes to us with a wealth of experience: as an Air Traffic Controller for the Air Force and the FAA. His OM career started in the US office in 2012, being a team leader in sending many Americans to the field for both short and long term. His most recent three years have been serving with OM in Norway, as Director of Church Relations and then as the interim Field Leader.
Dave has been married to Jo for 32 years. They have two grown daughters in the Atlanta area and they are expecting their first grand-twins!
Not only does he come with the right experience to flourish in this job, it seems God has also wired him just right to be a networker – being both extremely organized and personable at the same time. Hallelujah for good fits!
Mat Carson OM Arts, Director
