The Board of Directors of The Voice of The Martyrs Canada (VOMC) has appointed a new CEO.

Floyd A. Brobbel, son of VOMC founders Klaas and Nellie Brobbel, has been appointed to the position of Chief Executive Officer (CEO).

Brobbel began his full-time ministry with VOMC in June 2003 by serving as the Vice President of International Ministry and Operations.

The Voice of the Martyrs is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to raising awareness and support for persecuted Christians around the world. Founded in 1971, its Canadian office works internationally in numerous countries within the continents of South America, Africa, Asia and Europe.

His former role involved monitoring areas of Christian persecution and developing international partnerships through which VOMC has been able to implement and carry out its vision and mission to bring practical yet strategic projects that assist persecuted Christians globally.

Having grown up influenced by his parents and co-founders Reverend Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand and his wife Sabina, Brobbel is committed to informing Canadian Christians on how they can bless those who are suffering for Christ and better understand what it means to share in their affliction.

The Chairman of VOMC's Board of Directors, Peter Jardine, says, "The Board of Directors praise God that Floyd is following in his parents' footsteps and are also thankful for the experience he brings from interacting with our persecuted family and various international ministry partners directly.

"It is with eager anticipation that we look forward to the new things God has in store for VOMC under Floyd'sleadership as CEO."

Brobbel officially assumed the role of CEO on July 1 and will learn from Doug McKenzie as transitions to CEO Emeritus.
