Woody is a natural problem-solver, from his early days of creating software for NASA, to studying languages in Niger, to helping launch a secure email system for our partners. He’s been with JAARS since 2001, primarily in IT leadership. Before stepping in as president, he also served as our vice president of organizational strategy.
Whatever the challenges, Woody finds that a solid spiritual foundation is critical—keeping a close relationship with the Lord through prayer and God’s Word. When he’s not in the office, you’ll find him spending time with his family, playing a pickup game of soccer, or woodworking.
