Dr Dobson Resigns From Focus On The Family Board

03.02.09 | FL News Team

Dr. James Dobson announced his resignation from the ministry he founded 32 years ago late last week. The 72-year-old "Focus on the Family" founder says he has been slowly transitioning out of his position as board chairman because he did not want to stay in control for too long.

Jim Daly has taken over Dobson's previous position as president and CEO and says he is looking forward to helping "Focus on the Family" talk to the next generation about what the Christian ministry stands for. Dobson will remain as the public face of the Colorado Springs-based ministry, especially in their political and social activities.
