The U.S. Board includes these members:  Vinnie Adams (Indiana), Larryl Humme (Illinois), Bob Ippel (New Mexico), and Linda Kamps (Michigan).  Volunteers Getenet Timmermans and Steve Timmermans assist the Board in its work.

EthioFaith has been incorporated as led by its board in the U.S. and has received its charitable status from the Internal Revenue Service.


Soon there will be a parallel board in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  It, too, will conform to government requirements.  Two leaders there have already stepped up to serve. Rev. Woyita Olla is the Deputy General Secretary of the Kale Heywet Church--the largest protestant church in Ethiopia.  Also, a graphic designer in Addis Ababa, Dawit Tolessa Kelecha, will serve on this board as well.

Getenet and his siblings own a home in Addis Ababa.  Currently, it is divided into two apartments, but during the summer of 2017, it will be extensively renovated to become the home of Faith School.
