Andy Lay is the Vice President of Resource Development.
Andy comes to us with 35 years of experience in fundraising, specializing in major gift development and planned giving. For the last 10 years he served as the Senior Director of Development for Fuller Theological Seminary. He previously served at the Union Rescue Mission in Los Angeles, African Enterprise, and Every Home for Christ.
“I am thrilled to be a part of the Icthus staff,” says Andy. “Working alongside Don Weisbrod, one of the men I most admire, will give me the opportunity to do what I enjoy most—mobilizing spiritual and material resources for the Kingdom of God.”
No stranger to Icthus, Andy has been an enthusiastic donor and member of the Board of Directors for 20 years, many of which he served as the Chair. Now Andy has stepped down from that position in order to work more directly in the area of development.
Don Weisbrod writes, "Andy’s addition to the team is a big help to Icthus and to me. This will allow me more time to work with our co-workers in Latin America. With Andy’s help we’ll be able to reach many more young people."
