This morning I received a call from my long time friend and former Chairman of the Exodus International Board of Directors, Bob Ragan. He relayed the very sad news that Alan Medinger, Founder of Regeneration Ministries, had passed away early this morning. Alan was a dear friend and mentor. He is survived by his wife, Willa and their 4 children who all have families. He is also survived by thousands of men and women who were deeply impacted by his life and service.
Alan was the first to hold the position of Executive Director of Exodus International the position that is now entitled President. I will never forget the amazing letter I received from Alan when I was hired for my position in 2001. He was on the hiring committee that recommended me. His words and blessing as he passed the torch to me will always be encouraging and dear.
I will miss Alan greatly but rejoice with his family that he is in a place of great joy--a place that all of us have the opportunity to go if we have a relationship with Jesus Christ. If you don't know Jesus, you can.
