Day to Day Responsibilities
Guy’s day to day responsibilities are like those of any senior leadership staff in a major mission organization. They range from the necessary but mundane such as approval of team member’s expense reports and teams’ budgets, to delivery of technical design and engineer services as acting head of the Engineering Service Team, working to facilitate field communication and assisting FEBC Intl. ministry fields with their efforts in strategic planning. Guy is often on the road in Asia meeting in person with senior field staff, team members and partners. Travel is scheduled to be 30% of his year, but scheduled changes always intrude and he needs to visit his own donor base which leaves him on the road closer to 40% of the year.
The major categories of Guy’s regular work are team management, support of FEBC International’s Executive committee and providing broadcast engineering design services to ministry fields.
