Robert came to CFF in the Spring of 2009 as a volunteer willing to 'learn the ropes' and take his place alongside the team already active in equipping families. The Board asked Robert to serve as Director in May and is pleased to have his expertise in Recovery Ministries to add to the resources available to NE Arkansas families. 

Board Secretary Sister Mary John Seyler, OSB is one of the invaluable sisters in the Pastoral Care Department at St. Bernards Medical Center. An advocate for Boot Camp for New Dads, Sister Mary John was asked to consider serving on the Board to help connect families to our work through her pastoral care ministry at the hospital.
