Our New Executive Director

JOB DESCRIPTION – CAREER MISSIONARY FOR MEXICO

Background Of Mission On The Move:

Mission On The Move (MOM) is an interdenominational, evangelical Christian missions agency with missions in Kenya, Mexico, and Honduras. Each country has its own missionary who is responsible for development of an evangelical, discipleship program with an emphasis on children and their families. MOM is based in Springfield, Georgia, and is registered as a 501c3 non-profit organization.

 Description of Program in Mexico

Our Mexico mission takes children whose parents are incarcerated in the Mexican prison system or children who have been abandon or abused and gives them a safe place to live and learn about Jesus Christ. We provide a place to stay, three good meals a day, Christian parenting and discipline, and all educational needs. All this to give glory to God. Our mission also uses this ministry to reach out to the parents in prison, giving MOM an opportunity to share the power of the cross with a population that have typically refused or abandoned the Christian faith.

Career Missionaries serve for a minimum term of three years, renewable on agreement of both the missionary and the MOM Board of Directors. Career missionaries are not salaried employees.

We would enjoy the opportunity to discuss this dynamic career field and the opportunities it presents.

The Board of Directors announced that Marcy Rodriguez has been selected as the next Executive Director of Mission On The Move. She will step into the role on April 12, 2021.

As part of the selection process, the Mission On The Move board conducted a review of current global realities and the organization’s needs and priorities in the coming years. Our Search Team conducted a nationwide search and interviewed several candidates before selecting Marcy as our new Executive Director.

Marcy Rodriguez served as Secretary of Mission On The Move and was on the Executive Committee for our Board of Directors. Her first experience with Mission On The Move was in 1987 traveling to Honduras with a team led by our Founder, Brother Ed Cadle. She received her bachelor’s degree in International Business, Marketing and Spanish from Auburn University.

Marcy has experienced a life of missions with her parents, and later with her husband Carlos, going frequently to both Mexico and Honduras on mission trips with St. Mark UMC and Mission On The Move. Her first trip was at age 14 when she accompanied her parents and Brother Ed Cadle as they drove a modified bus down to Mexico to use as a mobile clinic. Since then, she has served on teams doing medical missions, training, construction, evangelism, and counseling.

Marcy has been in leadership at TSYS in Columbus since 1995, most recently serving as Director of Learning and Development for Global Payments for the last 14 years. In this role she gained experience in managing international teams, creating and deploying international skill development programs, global needs analysis, and managing a $2 million annual budget.

Marcy and her husband, Carlos, have two daughters and live in Columbus, Georgia, where Marcy grew up. They are members of Solid Rock Assembly of God in Columbus and are active in their community. After a distinguished career at TSYS, Marcy has taken an early retirement to grow her Mary Kay presence in Columbus and pursue her life long dream of taking a leadership role at Mission On The Move.

As we partner with you, we want to affirm that M.O.M. is committed to the calling of helping to fulfill the Great Commission as we follow our mission statement working with children and families believing that the love of Christ gives hope, transforms lives, and strengthens communities.

Thank you for being a valued partner, friend and co-laborer for the gospel of Christ. This selection process was grounded in prayer and we covet your prayers as we move forward in this transition.

We are so grateful for you and the eternal impact your prayers and generosity are making on the world. We excitedly look forward to many more years of connecting people to Jesus Christ with you.

God bless and keep you,
Your friends at Mission On The Move

It has been a pleasure and a priviledge to serve as the Executive Director of Mission On The Move. I have met so many incredible people with hearts for children around the world. You all have walked with us as we made many transitions and I am grateful for your partnership, your support, your encouragement, your trust and your faithfulness.

It is now time for me to step down as Executive Director so that Allison and I can focus on our work in Honduras. There are so many exciting things going on there and we have many opportunities for new growth and new Honduran partnerships. We are looking forward to our continued work in Honduras. Stepping down also allows me to have more time with family. It is a time for our two older children to transition fully into adulthood and for Graham to transition from a child to a teenager. Allison and I want to be there for them.

But it is with great joy that I am able to introduce our new Executive Director. I have had the pleasure of working with Marcy Rodriguez on mission teams and on our Board of Directors. I am confident that she can lead us into the future with a continued focus on vulnerable children and spiritual development. She is excited and eager to get started and we have already begun the transition. She will be great in this new role! And I look forward to working with her!

- Ernie Sizemore, Executive Director
