Why I Serve—Jeff Williams
Jeff Williams, new to the Associates Board in 2014, came to last year’s annual banquet after being introduced to Associates by a friend and colleague, Ric Wagner.
“I got to know Dr. Greene (Heath Greene, executive director), and just really felt like it was an organization with a strong mission and a great group of people.”
Jeff says he is consistently impressed with the therapists at Associates and feels a deep level of confidence in the quality of care they offer. He believes that the organization has a unique contribution to the community.
“Associates is unique even among other not-for-profit organizations,” Williams says. “I know there are plenty of Christian counseling organizations out there, but none of them are providing the depth and breadth of care and the amount of pro bono care that Associates does.”
This is the first time Williams has volunteered his time for a mental health care organization. He has many years of service under his belt for his church, Grace Community Church in Greensboro, in the area of finance. He served as treasurer and as a member and leader of the church’s finance team. After accepting a role on the church’s board, his role expanded to include both more strategic planning and also far more praying for and with the people of his church.
Jeff serves as president of the Alderman Company, a media and marketing management company based in High Point. Alderman serves a wide variety of clients, including Home Depot and Rooms to Go.
He hopes to serve Associates in the areas of marketing and advertising.
Jeff and his wife, Jennie, an elementary school principal in Randolph County, have been married for more than 19 years.
