The national spokesperson for the Christian Child and Family Services Association is Dr. Harold Shank. He has served in this role of speaking on behalf of Christian child care since 1996.

In his role as national spokesperson for CCFSA, Harold speaks and writes articles and books promoting Christian child care.  His work to promote Christian child care raises the awareness among churches and christians nation wide.

Harold’s latest book is Listening to His Heartbeat–What the Bible Says about the Heart of God (2009).  It will come as no surprise that the climatic chapter is how God has vulnerable and unwanted children at the core of his heart.   We all want to know that kind of God.   You will find this a helpful book to help others understand God’s heart for the hurting.

Harold serves as President of Ohio Valley University in Vienna, West Virginia. Associated with Churches of Christ, the university offers bachelors and masters degrees in over forty different fields.  He has served as a preacher, an author of several highly respected books and as an evangelist who has devoted much of his life’s work to developing ministries among the poor.

He is the author of Children Mean The World To God and he recently completed a commentary on the Minor Prophets in the College Press series. His most recent book is It’s All About God. He and his wife Sally have two sons, Daniel and Nathan.

The national spokesman, Harold Shank, has helped us to increase the visibility of the needs of children and families and the work being done to meet these needs.  He has also encouraged us to examine our focus on the future, and has lifted us up with his inspiring messages.”  Ralph Richardson, Hope Harbor Children’s Home and Academy, Claremore, OK
