“Jason brings a passion to serve others and a desire to help those in need,” said Union Mission Board Chairman Dr. Jonathan Abraham. “We are confident he will build on the strong legacy we have in place and lead the Union Mission forward so we can continue to serve the needs of people in West Virginia.”

Rex Whiteman. “My heart is and will always be with the mission and those we serve.”
