MB Foundation announces staff changes in the Fresno, California, office with Ken Warkentin as the newest member of the team and Bruce Porter retiring.
Ken Warkentin joins the team in Fresno as a new planned giving advisor. Warkentin brings with him more than 30 years of experience owning and operating a small business. He also held the position of executive director for a non-profit agency and has served on a variety of boards. He and his wife, Lisa, attend the Well Community Church in Fresno.
“We are excited to welcome Ken to our Fresno office and look forward to how his gifts will enhance our service to our clients,” says Nate Yoder, chief development officer of MB Foundation.
Bruce Porter retired May 31 as the planned giving advisor at the Fresno office. Porter joined the team in January 2019 after many years of experience as a pastor within the MB family. His pastoral work and understanding of the local church have helped to further the ministry at MB Foundation.
“We celebrate the contributions Bruce made to MB Foundation and to many MB churches and institutions throughout his career,” says Yoder.
