Fuller Center for Housing President David Snell has announced that 42-year-old Aaron Carmichael has joined The Fuller Center for Housing as Chief Development Officer. Carmichael will lead The Fuller Center’s efforts to develop financial resources to help fund the nonprofit Christian housing ministry.
“We’re delighted to have Aaron Carmichael join The Fuller Center staff,” Snell said. “He brings energy and enthusiasm to an important part of our work — raising the funds we need to get God’s people into decent housing. Once again, the good Lord has sent the right person at the right time to help move this ministry forward.”
A native of southern Indiana, Carmichael was most recently the Vice President of Fund Development at Indiana Youth Institute. He lives in the Indianapolis area with three daughters — ages 17, 15 and 14.
“The Fuller Center is a front-line organization that is making a difference in people’s lives immediately — making immediate impact that changes their lives forever and sets them on a new path and a new course,” said Carmichael, who has spent the week in Americus to become acquainted with other staff members and dive deeper into the rich history and culture of the movement started 40 years ago by Millard and Linda Fuller.
“I understand personally what housing poverty is, having experienced it as a child,” he added. “I know the difference it can make when there’s intervention and decent housing can be obtained.”
Carmichael said the fact that The Fuller Center is a Christian organization that will never stray from the faith principles behind the mission was a major factor in his joining the movement.
“My faith calls me to act,” he said. “Jesus didn’t stand on the sidelines. Jesus got in the muck. He got in the middle of it and engaged people. That’s what our faith calls us to do.”
