GREENVILLE, SC (June 2, 2017) - Dr. Bryce Norton, President/CEO of Miracle Hill Ministries, has resigned effective June 2nd, after serving the Upstate-based, nonprofit organization since October 2015.
"I am sad to announce my resignation from Miracle Hill Ministries and am grateful for the opportunity to have served here," Norton said. “Miracle Hill remains centered on and will continue to achieve its mission that homeless children and adults receive food and shelter with compassion, hear the Good News of Jesus Christ, and move toward healthy relationships and stability.”
Dr. Bruce Gray, Chair of Miracle Hill Ministries' Board of Directors, explained, "It is with regret that the Board of Directors announces the resignation of Dr. Bryce Norton as President of Miracle Hill Ministries. Dr. Norton has a great heart for homeless and hurting children and adults and has worked hard in his tenure to help us continue our mission.”
Gray added, “The Board would like to thank Bryce and his wife, Vio, for their contributions to the ministry during their time here. We will be in continued prayer for Dr. Norton and wish him and his family well. We are excited about the future of Miracle Hill Ministries, now celebrating 80 years of ministry to homeless and hurting individuals of South Carolina’s Upstate.”
During this time of transition for the organization, Dr. Gray noted that Reid Lehman, Miracle Hill’s longtime former CEO has agreed to return and serve as Interim President/CEO beginning on June 3rd. Lehman has primarily spent the last 18 months starting and strengthening similar organizations in the Carolinas and throughout the Southeast.
"Miracle Hill's organizational vision and mission continues with an extremely capable staff and diversified income streams," said Gray. “Our organization has strong programs and partnerships, and the ministry’s current strategic initiatives will continue without interruption."
