In May, we learned that Randy Thomas was stepping down as Vice President of Exodus International and taking on a part-time role. Yesterday, he announced he was stepping down altogether from the ex-gay organization. Today, Exodus has announced Jeff Buchanan as its new Executive Vice President.
This is a promotion for Buchanan, previously Senior Director of Church Equipping and Student Ministries. But it’s also a money-saving move for Exodus, as is apparent from its June newsletter, Exodus Impact:
[Jeff] will continue to oversee Church Equipping and Student Ministries until the recession lifts and we are able to hire others to help in one or both of those areas.
Before coming to Exodus in 2008, Jeff was an Associate Pastor in Nashville, TN and was the director of Journey, a sexual wholeness ministry in his local church. He is an ordained minister and has a Masters of Theological Studies from Liberty University.
