LONDON, ONT. — (CANADIAN CHRISTIAN NEWS SERVICE) — International Justice Mission Canada today announces Kevin Dixon as Vice-President of Operations. Kevin joins IJM Canada with 28 years of pastoral leadership experience, most recently as Dean of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, Ontario.
“The values and impact of International Justice Mission inspire me” says Kevin. “IJM’s global reach, inspired by God’s call to love all people and seek justice for the oppressed, is consistent with my aspirations. I am committed to working toward a world characterized by justice with peace.”
A seasoned professional, Kevin has provided executive oversight for staff and operations, developed and implemented visionary strategic plans, steered organizations to financial stability, and managed human resources-including the effective recruitment of executive-level staff.
With a passion for human rights, Kevin most recently served for 10 years on the Board of Directors for Cristosal Foundation, a human rights and development agency working to strengthen the ability of the poor to act for justice and development as equal citizens in a democratic society.
