Last week, we sent an e-mail to all members, announcing a recent transition in leadership here at Liberty HealthShare. In case you missed it, here's the text of that e-mail and a special video message from Larry Foster, our new CEO.

With gratitude to Dale Bellis for founding and leading the ministries to this point, the Board of Directors has selected board member Larry R. Foster to succeed him as the CEO of Liberty HealthShare. The board felt it was important to bring in someone with significant knowledge of the ministry as well as a good working relationship with Dale and the team. Dale remains with Liberty as Executive Vice President, Founder, and Board Chairman. Moving forward he will serve as a spokesman for Liberty HealthShare and as an expert on Christian healthcare sharing.

Along with Dale and Chief Operations Officer Drudy Abel, Larry has been on the Board of Directors since the beginning. He has been a consistent supporter of Liberty's ministry efforts from day one. This history will help his transition to this role.

Dale Bellis and Larry Foster

In addition to being a founding board member, Larry also has many years of work experience in the corporate arena. He has led large organizations in direct sales, customer service centers, inbound sales centers, technical operations, and direct & indirect retail. For nearly 10 years, he has been with Comcast Corporation, most recently at a Senior Director level.

Larry has also served on other non-profit boards of ministry and is currently the lead speaking pastor at Velocity Church, which was founded in 2012. He has a heart for ministry and serving and looks forward to continuing with a heart of service as he assumes this role. He believes in the importance of a great company culture, in teamwork, and in a never-ending pursuit of excellence so our staff can be the very best at what they do.

At a recent event honoring Dale Bellis for his years of service, Larry shared his vision, stating that "we haven't come this far to only come this far." He went on to detail goals for the future, inviting Liberty HealthShare staff to join him in pursuing greater success looking forward.
