Dr. Belinda Johnson White, Gilgal Board
Gilgal is governed by a Board of Directors, which is corporately in place to develop and monitor policies for the organization. More importantly, however, Gilgal’s board is comprised of distinguished individuals who passionately give of their time and talents to keep the ministry going. Take Dr. Belinda White for instance.
A long-time friend of the agency, Dr. White is a professor at Morehouse College. In addition to her board involvement with strategic planning, fundraising and raising awareness, Dr. White also partners with Gilgal staff to send interns to support resident programming. When asked why she serves, Dr. White had this to say:
The world breaks everyone and afterwards many are strong at the broken places.” These words by Ernest Hemingway hang nicely framed on my office wall. I glance at them often, and with each glance, I am reminded of Gilgal stories — theirs and mine.
