HCJB Global is seeking a new president to replace David Johnson.

The international organization’s head will step down in September 2008.

Separately, HCJB said board chairman Dr. Ron Cline, 70, will retire after 25 years, though he’ll continue to host a daily program and represent HCJB. Dr. James D. Allen will take the chair this September.

Commenting on Johnson’s departure, Cline called him a builder. “Through his leadership, we have defined a new vision to be the voice and hands of Jesus. We have expanded healthcare globally, strengthened our regional offices and positioned ourselves for effective ministry in the future.” Among his accomplishments was the New Life Radio partnership for satellite ministry in Russia.

Cline jointed HCJB Global in 1976 as pastor of the English Fellowship Church in Quito, Ecuador, and was its president from 1981 to 2001.

HCJB Global’s mission statement combines media and healthcare in its efforts to create disciples for Jesus.
