    To the IVCF Family and Ministry Partners, http://balikatan.org/modules/content/index.php?id=25

    After about a year of praying, searching, shortlisting, interviewing, and consulting with keypeople, the IVCF Board of Trustees wishes to finally announce the appointment of Mr. Rizaldy Harder as the next National Director of the IVCF-Philippines.

    Zaldy, as we fondly call him, has been an active member of the IVCF Board for 4 years now and is currently the vice-chairman. He declined the nomination twice early in the search. But the BOT sought to continually widen the search, and Zaldy was asked again to reconsider. After a season of prayer,he did accept to be a nominee intent to seek whatever is God's perfect will for him. He was among the 12 persons initially invited by the search committee for the position.

    Thereafter, during the meeting of the IVCF-BOT last January 16, 2006, and after corporately seeking God in prayer for guidance, the choice of the ND for the movement was finally decided with a unanimous vote cast by the BOT members for Zaldy. As per IVCF guidelines, a person may be elected to the  National Director position only by a unanimous vote of all the incumbent BOT members.

    The Board believes that Zaldy is the servant-leader that can continue to provide the needed leadership to IVCF-Philippines after Ms. Elsie Calalang's term ends on May 30, 2006. Zaldy recently made known to the Board that he is accepting the call to be the next National Director with calmness and full assurance of GOD's enabling grace and with dependence on the LORD's power and wisdom. He will assume office on June 1, 2006 to give time for Ms.Calalang to  turn over the responsibilities to him.

    At present, Zaldy is the President and Executive Director of  LINK-UP! Information Technologies, Inc., a software development and information management consultancy company. He is married to Mary Jane Inocencio (KC'79) and they are blessed with three children: Rian Angelo, Keia Joy and Caroline. Zaldy attended Kawayan Camp 1983 and graduated on the same year from Central Philippine University in Iloilo City with a degree in B.S. in Civil Engineering. He has a masteral degree in Development Management from the University of the Philippines in the Visayas.

    The Board encourages all IVCFers to pray for Zaldy and his family as he prepares to heed GOD's call at such a crucial time in IVCF's history as this.


    Sincerely in Christ,

    Ramon  A.  Rocha III
