Love INC thanks Spiegel; searching for director

Posted: Friday, January 12, 2018

Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) executive director, Joey Spiegel, recently announced his resignation to pursue new opportunities. He will remain in his role at Love INC until February 2 to support the organization through this transition.

“Serving as executive director has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I’m exceedingly proud of the things we’ve done here – from launching our Loving Neighbors Ministry and re-imagining our Christmas program, to investing in our building to ensure we can operate for years to come,” said Spiegel.

Spiegel joined the organization as executive director in June 2011, taking over for previous director Bill Fetrow, who had passed away earlier that year. Since that time, the organization has grown in volume and capacity by launching new initiatives and stabilizing its financial position. Spiegel spearheaded a successful capital campaign that allowed for the purchase and renovation of new administrative offices.

“Our community has been blessed by the leadership Joey has provided over these last six years, and we know he will continue to do great things for Huntington,” said Love INC board secretary Kasey Davis. “We are thankful that Joey helped find and train the dedicated staff and volunteers who will carry us through this transition.”

Spiegel has been a member of the Huntington community since 2002, when he enrolled at Huntington University. He graduated in 2006 and served on staff at Faith Community Church of God before joining Love INC. He and his wife, Kristen, are active members at St. Peter’s First Community Church.

“To every donor, volunteer and prayer partner of Love INC, I am so thankful for your continued care for our ministry,” said Spiegel. “You have given me a glimpse of the Kingdom of God here on earth, and I’m forever grateful for you.”

“Joey will leave a lasting legacy with this affiliate,” said Davis. “We look forward to celebrating his leadership with an open house at the end of the month.”

More details for that event will be available through Love INC’s Facebook page. Love INC has created a job description and position announcement as it seeks Spiegel’s successor. Potential candidates interested in the opportunity should submit their resume and cover letter to JobsAtHuntingtonLoveINC@gmail.com by January 31.

Love In the Name of Christ is a nationwide movement carried out by more than 135 affiliates, networking nearly 9,000 churches to serve their neighbors in need. The ministry provides hands-on service that offers material, emotional, relational and spiritual assistance appropriate for each person’s needs and requests.
