NATH welcomes two new board members
The Northwoods Alliance for Temporary Housing, Inc. (NATH) recently welcomed two new members to the NATH Board of Directors.
Dale Bishop has lived in the Northwoods since 2003. During much of that time, he served as Pastor of First Congregational United Church of Christ in Rhinelander. He retired from that position in 2011. In his role as pastor, he became well acquainted with issues of homelessness and poverty in our area.
Before moving to Wisconsin, Dale lived in Cleveland, Ohio and New York, N.Y., where he worked with the United Church of Christ’s overseas ministries program, first as Middle East Area Executive, then as the chief executive officer of the UCC’s global ministries.
He lives in Eagle River with his wife, Pat Tucker, who also recently retired as Pastor of First Congregational UCC in Eagle River.
Kevin Sigafoos joins the NATH Board of directors as the treasurer.
Kevin serves as Pastor of Northwoods Baptist Church in Rhinelander.
Before coming to Rhinelander, Kevin held positions in Financial Management in Kentucky, Delaware and Pennsylvania. He has a Master of Divinity from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY and a Master of Business Administration from Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA.
Kevin and his wife, Shelly, have seven children and live in Rhinelander.
NATH operates Frederick Place, an emergency, temporary shelter for 16 individuals who are experiencing homelessness in the Northwoods area. Committed volunteers are needed to serve on NATH committees or Board, as support shelter staff, to provide transportation for resident appointments, and to assist with special projects. Anyone who is interested in working with NATH is invited to call Tammy Modic at (715) 369-9777 for more information.
