Moeller to succeed outgoing CEO Doug Lockhart as Biblica continues its third century of ministry.
Biblica announced today that its Board of Directors, by unanimous vote, has appointed Dr. Carl A. Moeller as Chief Executive Officer, effective October 14, 2014. Dr. Moeller served three years as a pastor at Saddleback Church before founding Sequoia Global Resources. He will replace Doug Lockhart, who announced last March that he would transition from his role as Biblica’s CEO by early 2015.
During his time with Sequoia Global Resources, he helped cultivate philanthropic partnerships to address some of the most intractable global needs, including poverty, autism, education, and more. He has worked in more than 75 countries around the world and is an ordained minister with the Evangelical Free Church.
“Throughout our search, we have been careful to seek God’s wisdom and direction as we make this important selection. We feel confident that Carl is the right person to lead Biblica into our next season of ministry,” said Rob Gluskin, chair of Biblica’s Board of Directors. “His unique combination of global experience, organizational leadership, and ministry mindedness is exactly what we need as we help millions of people around the world connect more deeply with the Scriptures.”
“I am grateful that Carl answered the call to become the next leader of Biblica,” said outgoing CEO Doug Lockhart. “Biblica is an amazing ministry, and I believe God will continue to bless its work under Carl’s leadership.”
Dr. Moeller will assume the role of CEO on October 14, 2014. “Biblica has been doing kingdom work for over 200 years—providing Bibles for those who don’t have any and helping those who do to experience them more deeply,” he said. “I am so thrilled to be joining this incredible global ministry.”
Moeller will helm a global leadership team consisting of Scott Bolinder, Executive Vice President; Bob Dinolfo, Chief Financial Officer; Ken Norwood, Vice President of Philanthropy and Major Relations; Munengi Mulandi, Area Executive Director for Africa; Stephen Cave, Area Executive Director for Europe; Esteban Fernandez, Area Executive Director for Latin America; and Richard Loh, Area Executive Director for East Asia Pacific.
