The Entrust Board of Directors is pleased to announce the transition of Chris Goree into the role of Entrust CEO.
We owe many thanks and deep appreciation to David Goodman for the 11 years in which he has provided godly leadership to Entrust. We are grateful for all that David and Nancy have poured into the ministry and staff – their lives, gifts, support and love. David accepted the role of CEO at a difficult time in Entrust's history and has provided stable and effective leadership that has enabled Entrust to move forward successfully in fulfilling the mission God has called Entrust to accomplish. We are all thankful that David and Nancy will continue to serve with Entrust. David will serve as special advisor to the CEO, and Nancy will work with Women-to-Women Ministry Training, where she has had significant success and influence. Together, David and Nancy will continue to help Entrust accomplish its mission. We look forward to celebrating David and Nancy's loving leadership with all Entrust staff at an online mini All-Staff Conference in May 2021.
As of October 23, 2020, Chris Goree has transitioned into the role of CEO. The Board is excited to see how God will use Chris to lead Entrust into the future. We believe that God has brought Chris and his wife Laurie to Entrust at an important time for our ministry and world. As the world continues to change at an even greater speed, the need for trained leaders who multiply leaders into future generations is even more critical. Chris' previous experience in training leaders will be extremely valuable as he provides leadership for the ministry and staff of Entrust. Laurie's training and experience will enable her to have a significant ministry to our staff and Entrust.
CEO Chris Goree
Chris came to faith in Christ as a child and was raised in a family that was dedicated to serving the Lord. Chris and his wife Laurie met through a campus ministry at the University of Oklahoma in Norman. Chris practiced law in Tulsa, Oklahoma, for several years while leading ministries in his church and in their neighborhood. Those ministries led to God's calling to full-time ministry. Chris and Laurie moved back to Norman to lead campus ministries developing students into multiplying leaders around the world. Chris served on a regional leadership team overseeing ministry in Oklahoma, Arkansas, Texas and Louisiana. Laurie is on staff with Entrust as an organizational strategist. They have two married adult children.
COO Mark Huffman
In 2006, Mark and his family moved to Odessa, Ukraine, to plant churches and train the next generation of leaders and cross-cultural workers in the former Soviet Union. After planting two churches, as well as training and sending around 90 missionaries, God brought Mark and his wife, Kim, back to the U.S. in 2017 to continue serving on a broader global basis, with Entrust. As COO, Mark is responsible for the operation of all Entrust programs, and manages our program and regional directors. He and Kim live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
CFO Lynn Eber
Lynn received Christ through the ministry of Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship in her sophomore year in college. She served nine years with Campus Crusade in England, Germany and the Czech Republic. After returning to the U.S., she earned an accounting degree, worked for a CPA firm and came to Entrust to serve as finance director. She also occasionally helps facilitate Entrust training as a mentor for Women-to-Women Ministry Training (WWMT). She lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
