P.R.A.Y. is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Noland as its new Chief Executive Officer for P.R.A.Y. Jason will assume responsibilities on November 1, 2016 and will succeed Mark Hazlewood who is retiring after 33 years serving P.R.A.Y.
After graduating Northeast Missouri State University, Jason launched a nearly twenty-year career with the Boy Scouts of America specializing in unit service, fundraising, and leadership with distinction. Most recently, he provided leadership as the first Director of Development and Volunteer Services for Saving Sight, a leader in eye-banking worldwide with charitable vision services for adults and children across the state of Missouri. While there he increased giving each year, created monthly donor programming, developed the Lions Volunteer Center for eyeglass recycling, and provided leadership to international eyeglass mission clinics.
Jason brings with him successful experience managing staff as well as budgets and working with volunteers and boards of the highest caliber.
An Eagle Scout and Vigil Honor member of the Order of the Arrow, Jason earned his faith's religious award as a youth. He has served his son's Scouting experience as Den Leader, Cubmaster, and a member of the Troop Committee. Both daughters were Girl Scouts where Jason provided training and experience to young women in outdoor skills.
Jason and his wife of 20 years, Kimberly are the proud parents of Kaitlyn, Brayden, and Karlie who keep them active in cheerleading, band, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, and support of their school experience. He is also a member of the Harvester, MO Lions Club and coach for Shield Baseball, a club team that emphasizes the virtues of faith, family, and good sportsmanship.
He is excited to get going and looks forward to working closely with the
Board, volunteers, and the many constituents of P.R.A.Y.
The P.R.A.Y. Board feels privileged that Jason has chosen to work with P.R.A.Y. and looks forward to expanding the P.R.A.Y. ministry under his leadership.
