ASAP Ministries Announces New Leader

Darryl Hosford Named President of ASAP Ministries

ASAP Ministries’ board of directors announced that it has appointed Darryl Hosford as its new President. He replaces Julia O’Carey, who has been with ASAP for 19 years and led the ministry since 2013. O’Carey recently stepped down to pursue further education and devote more time to her family. She will continue working part-time, assisting in Development as an ASAP Mission Advancement Officer.

Hosford has been associated with ASAP Ministries for many years and brings a well-rounded knowledge of the ministry and its field operations to his new role. He has participated in ASAP mission trips and served as a board member for several years before joining the organization full-time as International Field Director. Hosford previously served as the President of Simple Updates for over 25 years.

Hosford shared, “ASAP Ministries is making an impact in Southeast Asia. Our church planters, medical missionaries, and teachers are making great strides forward in sharing Jesus with the communities they serve. Over 8,500 students—mostly from Buddhist homes—are learning about Jesus at our schools.

“ASAP Ministries will continue the same mission of the past: to spread the gospel across Southeast Asia, meet the needs of the marginalized, help them become disciples of Jesus, and train them to share that good news with others!”
