World Vision leader to speak at NWC
Thursday, October 22, 2009
Dedicating much of his adult life to working in the rural, under-resourced communities of West Virginia, Seaman is committed to addressing the root causes of poverty and helping people see the untapped potential in their lives. World Vision in Appalachia is located in Barbour County, W.V., one of the five most under-resourced counties in a state that consistently ranks in the bottom tier of the country’s economic scale. World Vision’s Christian relief and development ministry impacts thousands of children and families in West Virginia each year.
Seaman earned a master’s degree in Christian faith and public policy from Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has served on the boards of numerous organizations, including the Christian Community Development Association.
