LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

On Thursday, Love In The Name of Christ's Board of Directors announced that Dr. Jerry Spann, the Lufkin-based non-profit organization's executive director, will be stepping down on March 31.

Before the Love INC board of directors meeting, Larry Lassiter, the president, announced Spann's resignation. Spann has served as Love INC's executive director since March of 2002.

"What I will miss is the everyday contact with people that are in the midst of a crisis that are looking for someone to listen to them, to care for them, to realize there is hope  and to give them that hope, to give them the opportunity to know that there are so many places in this community," Spann said. "So many people that want to reach out, will reach out  that are looking for ways to reach out to them."

"A search committee headed by President Larry Lassiter has been formed to replace Dr. Spann," a press release stated. "Any qualified person interested in being considered for the executive director position may contact the Love INC office at (936) 637-6637 or by e-mail at cmloveinc@suddenlnk.com.

Spann said in his letter of resignation that he has accepted the senior pastor position at Lufkin's First Church of the Nazarene, the press release stated.
