Board Member

Bonnie Liefer is the Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Coalition for Christian Outreach (CCO) in Pittsburgh – they are an interdenominational campus ministry whose mission is “transforming college students to transform the world.” She's been with them since 1978 – humble in times of honor and hopeful through difficulties and changes in life and ministry. We wanted this creative, decisive woman on our board the minute Donald Guthrie introduced us to her. She became a close friend and has been on our Board of Directors since 1996.

It isn't just that Bonnie is an excellent graphic artist with an eye for layout and web design who can offer Ransom advice; her non-profit organization experience is something we highly value. She also has a combination of gifts we need: Honest and practical feedback for a bunch of dreamers. She's a good listener. She gets being committed. Working with her in the kitchen is like working with that Japanese maul-thrower and Jackie Joyner-Kersee, but that doesn't distract us from the best thing about her; she's acquired wisdom that comes from loving God and from suffering in real life – it makes her a wonderful friend and board member.

Bonnie lives with her husband, Dave, in Pittsburgh and enjoys gardening, and watching movies with Dave when she's not working. In fact, her garden is a redemption narrative as she and Dave have slowly turned a steep, ugly backyard full of trashed rocks and evil weeds into a place of living beauty. One of her greatest joys has been helping raise her stepson, Jake, who is now on CCO staff. We give him credit for helping Mom see the potential brilliance of blogs when he began one himself. Before that she was pretty certain they were a waste of time.

Bonnie designs outstanding greeting cards for the CCO, you won't find the likes of them in the Christian bookstore or anywhere else either. You may have received a brochure about them in one of our mailings. They can be seen and ordered at http://www.cards.ccojubilee.org.

Bonnie is a kindred spirit and encourages Ransom's calling to help ordinary believers live in and see culture from a Christian perspective. I doubt we can offer her anything more than a certificate, but we hope she stays with us for at least 25 years.

spacer This web site is old and creaky. The email function functions poorly when it functions at all. Worse, it all looks old. So we are starting work on building a new site, and hope to have it functioning by fall.

Our vision will not change, nor will our attempt in this little spot of the Internet to invite you to join us in thinking about the things that matter most. Thanks for visiting.
