Urban Alliance begins a new chapter this week in preparation for our next season of growth and development.

Dave Brooker has announced that he is retiring from Urban Alliance (UA) after 11 years of serving as President and CEO. Brooker will continue to serve on UA’s Board of Directors through the end of 2019. Although his roles in the organization are changing, Dave will continue to support UA.

“I am enthusiastic about the opportunity for new development at UA and will continue to stay involved in advancing UA’s mission in the community through the roles of UA founder and donor,” shared Brooker.

In conjunction with this transition, UA’s Board of Directors has also elected Russell Jarvis as the organization’s new President and CEO. Jarvis was a part of UA’s founding team with Brooker in 2008 and has provided ongoing leadership to the organization as its Vice President and COO.

“I look forward to carrying on the mission and values that have characterized UA from its inception while also building on that foundation with new vision and direction for the future,” said Jarvis.  

Brooker added, “I am thrilled about all that God is doing in and through UA at this time.”
