There has long been a prayer within the coordination effort of Kairos in the U.S. for God to raise up additional leadership to shepherd the movement forward. Team Expansion, as many of you may know, has played a significant leadership role, but with the announcement of Simply Mobilizing the need for more shoulders to support this special ministry was recognized all the more. Over the last couple of years God has been answering that very prayer and we are excited to officially announce Colleen Di Raddo as the new National Coordinator for Simply Mobilizing USA. Colleen has a history in higher education as a trainer and administrator and also works as the Church Liaison for the Lausanne Movement.
She has been serving with the coordination team for some time and has been working into this role as we’ve transitioned with Kairos into the Simply Mobilizing movement.

A word from the Global Desk of Simply Mobilizing International:

Since, the Kairos Course was first introduced in 2009, Team Expansion, under the leadership of Eric Barry, has faithfully laid the groundwork for Kairos (now Simply Mobilizing) to survive and thrive in the USA. We are hugely indebted to Eric, for his leadership, and to Team Expansion, for their meaningful and generous partnership that we know will, in various other forms, continue well into the future. Our heartfelt thanks are beyond expression!    

A word from Eric Barry, Team Expansion VP of Training & Outreach, and former Kairos USA National Coordinator:

Colleen Di Raddo is such a blessing to Simply Mobilizing and we are thrilled that she will officially be taking over as the National Coordinator for the US! She has already been doing a great job operating as the interim and we are excited to see her continued leadership.  She inspires all of us and we praise God for how he has blessed our NCT with such an outstanding National Coordinator as Colleen. We’ll be praying for her!

Finally, a word from our National Coordinator, Colleen Di Raddo:

It is a joy and deep privilege to work together on the US-NCT. Connection and collaboration are key words on my heart as I take this position. We have an opportunity, through technology and our mobility in the US to work together to support each other in this movement. Let’s prayerfully seek for ways to strengthen and grow this mobilization movement in the US so that our brothers and sisters, not yet on mission with the Lord are awakened to this divine privilege and call. Pray for us. Join us!
