Center For Student Missions Names New President and CEO

The Center for Student Missions, headquartered in Dana Point, CA, has appointed Dan Reeve as its third president and CEO. A year ago, current president, Noel Becchetti and his wife, Kyle, vice president of operations at CSM, announced that they were sensing God’s prompting to leave CSM in September, 2008 to pursue God’s next call to a new ministry. In order to ensure a smooth and effective transition, the board immediately began a search process that recently concluded with the hiring of Reeve. He will begin his new assignment on September 1, 2008.
In his new role, Reeve will lead CSM into its third decade of vibrant, urban ministry where the mission remains central:
To provide an effective urban ministry experience that transforms lives,
influences churches and communities, and honors Christ.

Reeve joins CSM from Brooklyn, NY where he serves as Director of Urban and Holistic Mission for the Urban Intercultural Mission, a ministry of the Evangelical Free Church of America. Reeve has over 30+ years of urban ministry experience. Among many other factors that clearly led the board to unanimously sense Reeve was the right choice are his strong interest and experience in mentoring and coaching staff, his imaginative partnering with urban ministries and his commitment to building young urban leaders.
Reeve has an M. Div. degree in Urban Ministry from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School in Deerfield, IL and is also pursuing Doctoral Studies in Transformational Leadership for an Urban World at the Bakke Graduate School in Seattle, WA.
About CSM – Serving middle school, high school and college students, primarily, and increasingly hosting small groups of adults, CSM currently offers an urban ministry experience in nine cities throughout North America. Whether a full week or just 24 hours, CSM offers a robust and intentional living, serving and learning experience in the city. Opportunities for full, part-time staff and internships in these cities provide further training for the next generation of ministry leaders.
