The president of Open Doors U.S.A., one of the largest ministries that supports persecuted Christians globally, is stepping down. After 9 years at the helm, Carl Moeller is out. He said he's starting a new business venture in California, and it's time for him to say goodbye to the ministry. He told his employees Wednesday "don't look at it as if i'm leaving Open Doors. We as Christians still have the same boss. I'm just switching departments." Board member Steve Ridgeway has been appointed interim CEO. Open Doors estimates there are 100 million Christians worldwide that suffer persecution and death because of their faith in Christ.
