The Mansfield Mission Center has a new executive director with a familiar face.
The center's board of directors announced Brian McFadden will take over as the new executive director Aug. 7. With over 21 years of experience as the Compassion Pastor at Rush Creek Church, McFadden brings a wealth of knowledge and passion for helping under-resourced families in both domestic and international communities.
At Rush Creek Church, a multisite congregation with campuses in South Arlington, Mansfield, Grand Prairie and Midlothian, McFadden has played a key role in developing outreach centers and implementing various initiatives to support families in need. His leadership in establishing resource centers in South Arlington and East Fort Worth has provided vital resources and programming to assist families with immediate physical needs, as well as restorative programming aimed at helping individuals lead more purposeful and productive lives.
Throughout his extensive career, McFadden has worked closely with diverse cultures, nurturing a deep understanding and appreciation for global communities. He has successfully spearheaded projects in multiple countries, dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families through his compassionate approach to ministry.
McFadden is married to Sheryl, has two adult children, a daughter-in-law and a grandson.
Under McFadden's leadership, Mansfield Mission Center aims to expand its outreach programs and strengthen its commitment to empowering under-resourced families within the Mansfield ISD community.
Mansfield Mission Center's current executive director Carmin MacMillan Harris announced that she would step down as executive director of the center in August after accepting a new position with The University of Texas at Arlington as an assistant professor of practice leading the Bachelor of Arts in Philanthropy degree program.
Harris has served as executive director of the Wesley Mission Center since June 2015.
