The Caring Place board, staff, and volunteers extend sincere thanks to Dr. Dewayne Thompson and Tom Harris for their devotion to caring for the underprivileged of Bradley County. They also welcome the Rev. Jason Browning and Mrs. Sandra Kay Williams to their board and look forward to serving with them to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of the disadvantaged in our area.
Jason Browning and his wife, Jennifer, are native Floridians who moved to Cleveland in 2006. They are the proud parents of three daughters: Ansly, 12; Abby 10; and Ava 4. They are graduates from Lee University and are excited about the service movement in Cleveland and Bradley County. Jason serves as associate pastor for Westmore Church of God and has a passion for sharing the message of Jesus.
Sandra Kay Williams is married to Dr. Mark L. Williams and has two sons, one of whom is in middle school, the other attends Lee University.
She is the international women’s director for the Church of God and her husband serves as general overseer of The Church of God International Offices. Sandra Kay has been an advocate in several Christian causes, including the “27 Million Campaign.” Since learning of the plight of over 27 million slaves around the world, Sandra Kay has joined the fight for freedom for those trapped in the bondage of human trafficking by raising awareness and funds for their intervention.
Jason and Sandra Kay join Kim Brooks, William Brown, Betty Chase, Darlia Conn, Margo Fitzgerald, Coleman Foss, Bob Hardin, Martin Ringstaff, Mike Seago, and Lou Ann Wright to comprise The Caring Place board of directors.
