At the beginning of this month, all at Müllers were delighted to welcome Dan Doherty as our new Chief Executive Officer. Dan has been working part time for Müllers as Charity Team Leader for a year and we are thrilled to have him take on this new full-time role of Chief Executive Officer.
We thought we’d ask him a couple of questions about his new role:
What is your favourite thing about working for Müllers?
Growing up in Bristol gave me a good appreciation of the legacy of George Müller. At the age of 16 I studied computing in one of the original orphan homes (now owned by City of Bristol College) and never thought I'd be involved in the ongoing work later in life. I love that Müllers continues to serve children and their families/communities both in Bristol and worldwide, still rooted to the conviction that combining prayer and action achieves far more for the Glory of God than merely human effort.
What are you most looking forward to working on in your new role?
I'm excited about redeveloping our museum in a way that will reach many more children and young people in Bristol with the story of George Müller in a way that highlights the living reality of Christian faith. Bristol is a great place to live but there are also big challenges. It’s important that we learn from the past and part of that is recognising what Christians like George Müller achieved for the people who were in great need and how it encouraged the church across the city to step out in faith.
Please join us in praying for Dan as he settles in to his new role at Müllers.
‘As Müllers continues to focus on reaching future generations with our growing vision, we are delighted to have Dan Doherty starting as our new CEO, alongside the dedicated and gifted staff team. We are committed to reaching and empowering the next generation as we see communities transformed locally and globally through partnership, built on prayer and faith.’
