John Hendrickson, CEO at Frederick Living will retire February 28, after more than 15 years with the organization.
During his time at Frederick, Hendrickson is proud to be part of a 124 year heritage of service to older adults. He is particularly proud of the passion and dedication of his coworkers which have been even more evident during the pandemic. “Their genuine love for our residents and the every-day commitment to mission inspires me,” said Hendrickson.
In retirement, Hendrickson and his wife, Sue, plan to move closer to family, including two grandchildren – with another expected in June. They want to explore, to learn, and to grow with their grandchildren.
In the short-term, he expects to work part-time, to pursue coaching certifications, to serve on a non-profit Board, and to write. When COVID subsides, Hendrickson would like to revisit a fly fishing/golfing trip to Utah. He says that wherever they settle, they will connect with a local church body and seek active ministry.
“The people with whom I have served at APG and MHS are among the most dedicated and principled professionals that I have ever known,” Hendrickson said. “Special memories of reflective prayer and intimate conversation are a blessing to me. Our times of sharing and learning together at Assembly enriched me.”
