Our board represents a cross-section of our country. Our members have a passion for NCF and those we serve. The members work hard to ensure NCF’s long-term sustainability, and oversee that donations directly affect those in need.
Cherry first became involved with NCF in the 1970s as a doctoral student at Rosemead School of Psychology (RSP), leading groups for NCF’s Missionary and Ministers Conferences. From there her interest in serving the missions community grew. She recently retired as associate professor of psychology at RSP where she taught a course that integrated psychology and spiritual growth, as well as teaching clinical courses and supervising students' work as therapists. Over the years, she has been active in member care, using her skills as a therapist to counsel missionaries in the U.S., in conferences in Switzerland, and in NCF’s Counseling and Member Care Seminars. Her passion for missions and the emotional and mental well-being of the Lord’s workers has fit well with her involvement as a board member with NCF since 1999.
