Family Life Radio’s Chief Advancement Officer Rod Robison Retires After 30 Years.
After thirty years heading up fundraising for Family Life Radio and its sister ministry The Intentional Living Center, Rod Robison announced his retirement from both ministries this week. His career in fundraising and executive leadership in Christian radio and television has spanned four decades, most recently as Chief Advancement Officer and Vice President of Development with the Tucson, Arizona-based ministries.
“In the past thirty years I’ve seen FLR grow from nine stations to forty-five and in more recent years tens of thousands of couples attend our Intentional Living marriage conferences with Dr. Randy Carlson,” Robison reflected. But, he added, he’s especially grateful to have been with a ministry that reaches around the world by partnering with other organizations assisting “the least of these.” “Thousands of children have been snatched from the clutches of poverty and neglect through our partnership with Compassion. Hundreds of thousands of parasite cures were distributed in partnership with World Concern. One hundred homes built for families living in a dump in Jamaica. We’ve reached into Kenya and Ethiopia with Unite 4 Africa. Tens of thousands of disadvantaged children have been given the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Youth Haven with whom FLR has partnered for a half century.”
He added, “These thirty years with FLR and Intentional Living and ten years previous to that with other broadcast ministries have offered me an amazing journey. I’m grateful to have been invited to partner with so many terrific, dedicated fellow employees and even more donors who allowed us to steward their gifts.” Robison stated that he’s now moving into God’s next phase for his life – mentoring other leaders. He is currently consulting with ministries seeking direction for their fundraising and strategic planning. He quickly added, “But my primary focus will be spending more time with my wife Jeannie, our kids, and grandkids.”
