Faith Friendship Villas would not exist without the dedication and hard work put in from our staff and volunteers.
Gwendolyn Didden , Executive Ministry Director
Gwen joined FFM in September 2017 after an extensive process to recognize who God was calling to lead this ministry into its next phase. With more than 25 years’ experience in growing and managing non-profit and social service agencies, she is able to work within government as well as business arenas, making connections and implementing sustainable programs
Gwen is responsible for the efficiency of the ministry, the quality of care/services we provide, and overall ministry dynamics. This includes regulatory compliance, policy and procedure enhancement, selection and oversight of staff, and training/human resource needs of all employees. In addition, she is responsible for developing plans for our future, and implementing strategies to grow the ministry. This includes overseeing advertising, fundraising, and the identification of community resources, as well as publication of our newsletter and other printed communications.
Serving since November 2016 as the Director of Ministry Support, Scott oversees functions that support our care activities.
The main areas under his responsibility are property management, food service process, operational/environmental support and business management.
Ray Reitz, Business Manager
After serving on our Board of Directors for seven years, and as Pastor of a local church for 15 years, Ray took a brief hiatus from human services, only to find that God had a role for him on our staff.
Whether it’s helping residents manage their personal funds, assisting in the transaction of ministry finances, or the identification and nurture of donors and other sources of financial help, Ray approaches the task with thoroughness, tenacity, and sensitivity.
Serving since April 2007, first as Director of Development, and currently as a Care Ministry Director. In addition, Jim also assists with the conduct of recreational activities, and as a resident of Mountville, he is one of our main PR reps to the local community.
