Ronald C. Hall announced today his retirement as president and CEO of Virginia Baptist Foundation effective January 31, 2022. Joining Virginia Baptist Foundation in 1996 as the director of communications/public relations, he was named as the fifth president, CEO of the foundation in 2005.
“I simply cannot believe that I stand at this moment in time. I was blessed across my career to work at six different BGAV churches for nearly twenty years and then for twenty-five years at a ministry that builds a bridge to tomorrow for Christian believers. God has been good! My heart is full,” said Hall.
Since 1923, Virginia Baptist Foundation has worked to move the mission of the church forward. Believing that Christian generosity grows more followers of Christ, the foundation seeks to encourage and strengthen stewardship through both estate planning and money management.
According to board chair James Wilkerson, “Ron has used his giftedness with people to bring the foundation into a new and exciting phase. His passion for encouraging individuals to support the ministries of their local church through planned giving will have an immeasurable impact.”
During his tenure as president and CEO, the foundation assets under management increased to $225 million.
In his retirement, Hall plans to write a book of sermons and delve into his hobby of classic cars. He looks forward to spending more time with his wife, Celeste, as well as his children and grandchildren.
The board has appointed the current Chief Financial Officer Todd J. Fuller as the acting CEO.
