Non-Exempt Black Staff

I support the mission of NBSF. However, I am a non-exempt staff person at the General Board of Discipleship and according to the statement I read this organization is for exempt staff. I work as Coordinator of Production and Related Services at the Upper Room and hope that one day this job will become exempt. Until then, I pray you all will "Do Good, Do No Harm, and Stay In Love With God" in all that you do in your work and ministry.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella.
