Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) Canada has announced who will be taking over as Executive Director of the organization after Don Peters retires from the role after 16 years in it this Fall.

 

Rick Cober Bauman is moving into the role this October after being with the MCC Family for nearly 30 years, currently serving as MCC Ontario's Executive Director.

 

Morning show Co-Host Chris Sumner caught up with Rick via phone, so we could get to know him and his family a little better.

 

 

Rick has served with MCC since 1989 in a variety of capacities. For the past nine years, he has given leadership to MCC Ontario as executive director. Prior to that, he served in the roles of MCC Ontario program director and Aboriginal Neighbours program coordinator. From 1989–1992, he was an MCC voluntary service worker, overseeing education, advocacy and community development work in Sheshatshiu, Labrador.

 

It is that experience in Labrador nearly 30 years ago he feels has played a big role in his understanding of MCC, and readied him for this new experience.

 

 

Rick and his wife Louise Cober are members of Tavistock (Ontario) Mennonite Church and have three adult children, Nicole, Jesse and Jared.
