Darvin Darling named Episcopal Church Director of Information Technology
Darvin Darling has been named the Episcopal Church Director of Information Technology, a member of the Presiding Bishop’s staff.
“I’m thrilled to have Darvin leading our IT efforts,” noted the Rev. Deacon Geoffrey Smith, Episcopal Church Chief Operating Officer, in making the announcement. “He’s smart, thoughtful and at least three steps ahead when thinking about what the church needs from technology to build up the Jesus Movement.”
“At my core, what has always mattered most to me are the values of kindness, compassion and being in service to others,” Darling said. “When I decided to move on to a new opportunity, I felt that the Episcopal Church best modeled the ideals of what I felt would continue to advance that commitment. It has been and continues to be a beacon of hope and an organization which provides services to the least among us.”
In his new position, Darling will report to the Chief Operating Officer and will be responsible for all the information technology operations for the Episcopal Church Center and the staff located in NYC and remotely.
