A faith-based nonprofit in Grand Rapids has announced changes to its board of directors.

Guiding Light elected Ed Postma to the role of chair. Postma replaces outgoing chair Shawn Merritt.

John Harrington will take Postma’s role as vice chair, and Brad Mathis will move from director to at-large executive chair.

Peter Albertini and John Dice will stay in their roles as secretary and treasurer.

The nonprofit also said Dawn Buursma, Harvey Koning, Andy Odehnal, Rev. Tim Wilson and Dallas Lenear are joining the board as directors.

All board members serve two-year terms.

Stuart Ray, Guiding Light’s executive director, said he looks forward to working with the new board and “seeing what the future holds for our organization.”
