"the Lord is Risen..."

"the Lord is risen indeed"
Several Years ago, President Harris began an Easter morning email exchange of "the Lord is Risen" greetings. Mrs. Sue Harris is continuing that tradition.

Alumni Involvement Update
We are pleased that several alumni have volunteered for prayer and scholarship support, as well as other activities. We also have increased the number of donors to the scholarship fund.

And we have had a couple of responses for Board directors.

However, we still need Board leadership in order to continue as an organization beyond 2014.

(If you have not received the previous postcards or emails, you can click to read the May letter and the June letter.)

The issue we face is that we must comply with not-for-profit association requirements in the State of Iowa. Four Board Directors will continue, but we have 3 positions that must be filled, as well as 1 new position: President, Secretary, Ministries, and either Social Media or Finances.

The time commitment includes a few phone meetings per year, as well as the time required by the position such as the Secretary taking minutes, the Social Media Dir. posting to Facebook, etc. The President additionally meets annually with the accountant and the attorney. Details for each of these positions are on the Leadership page.

The Board will be meeting the 1st weekend in June. Persons interested in serving on the Board must respond by then. The Board can be contacted at We stress again that without these leadership positions being filled, the VCAA will not be able to continue beyond 2014. To learn the results of the leadership search and possible closure of the alumni association, you will need to check here on June 15.

As a Board we have endeavored to fulfill VCAA's commitment to scholarships and alumni connections. But now this point of leadership is before the Association as a whole. Please support this matter in prayer - if the Association should continue, prayer for those who will step forward; and if none feel led to join the Board, prayer for the arrangements that will be made.
