Additionally, Frank Parrish assumed the role carried by Ralph Mahoney - who founded World MAP more than 40 years ago - as President of the international non-profit organization.
Frank and Wendy Parrish's call to join World MAP came "none too soon," said Mahoney, Wendy Parrish's father, who had hoped to entrust the ministry to someone who shared his passion for training the struggling church leaders in the Third World.
The Board's unanimous decision prompted Mahoney to comment, "World MAP is seeing the dawning of a new day!"
"It has been our privilege," said Board member and spokesperson Jeff Clark, "to have Frank and Wendy on-board at World MAP for the past three years as the ministry has navigated this transition of leadership from Founder Ralph Mahoney to Frank and Wendy Parrish."

Honor to Whom Honor is Due: A Tribute To The Ministry Of Ralph Mahoney
It is our privilege to follow these scriptural injunctions, and to honor the Founder of World MAP, Ralph Mahoney, for a lifetime of service to God and dedication to advancing God's Kingdom purposes throughout the earth.
By My Spirit "Whatever God does, it shall be forever. Nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken from it. God does it, that men should fear before Him" (Eccl 3:14). Ralph Mahoney would be the first to acknowledge that God deserves the glory for what has been accomplished through Ralph's life and ministry.
It was more than 65 years ago that the eye of the Lord saw a loyal and willing vessel in Ralph Mahoney.
Yielding To The Call Ralph's parents were Spirit-filled, and active in the Assemblies of God. It was during a prayer meeting in their home that Ralph, at 5 years of age, had a profound sense of calling from the Lord.
The issue was finally settled in his own heart when he reached his late teens. Throughout an entire summer, young Ralph felt the Holy Spirit's gentle "pressure" to dedicate himself to missionary service.
Then, "in a church service in 1948, I made a commitment of my life to the Lord Jesus Christ," he recalls. Ralph says he has tried, since that day, "to walk in the will of the Lord."
Though Ralph expected an immediate call to a far-away country, the first place the Lord told him to go was only 3 miles from home! Ralph obeyed the Lord, and considers that first step of simple obedience critical to all that has transpired since. "Had I not obeyed God's call at that time, so much of my life would have been different," Ralph explains.
Later, in the Lord's timing, Ralph enrolled in a missionary training school in Northern California. It was there that more of God's purpose for his life unfolded, when he met his wife-to-be, Rose Shelton.
Critical Crossroads The missionary training school was non-charismatic. Ralph was openly Pentecostal, and shared freely with those who asked him questions about his experience.
Ralph showed them scriptures about the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Later, as different ones went privately to God in prayer, they were baptized in the Holy Spirit!
This activity did not sit well with the school's leadership; they told Ralph he would receive a missionary appointment only if he would promise to not teach or preach on the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
Ralph had come to a critical crossroads in His ministry walk. He was already beginning to understand that the Holy Spirit's power and work were essential to effective evangelism and missionary service. Had he denied this truth, one of the foremost ways in which God desired to use Ralph Mahoney to advance the Kingdom of God would have never been realized.
Ralph could not agree to the stipulation of the leadership, so he left the school. However, before he left, he asked Rose to marry him; she accepted his proposal.
Jehovah-Jireh Ralph and Rose were married in 1951 in Louisiana, where Ralph was serving as a youth pastor. Ralph and Rose were married in 1951 in Louisiana, where Ralph was serving as a youth pastor.
Within the next 6 years, Ralph and Rose had 5 children!
Rose took care of the children while Ralph pastored.
In each church, Ralph and Rose would give 50% of all church income to foreign missions work.
Ralph and Rose learned in those early days that you can never "outgive" God, especially when your priority is His priority - reaching the lost with the Gospel.
Though a missionary appointment had not yet materialized, opportunities began to open up for Ralph to travel and minister outside the United States. At that time, the Lord quickened Romans 9:17 to Ralph's heart: "For this very purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth."
Ralph traveled with teams to Central America, and then Japan. In both instances, hundreds of people came to Christ and signs and wonders followed the preaching of the Word. Ralph's missionary burden grew as he saw the desperate need for more laborers who would go into the ripened harvest fields of the world.
As more overseas trips followed, Ralph began to come across many "displaced" missionaries.
Ralph saw the need to help missionaries remain on the field, and took steps to establish ways to assist them. He began to maintain their Stateside mailing lists; print and mail their newsletters; and raise additional support for them as he could. Serving the needs of these displaced missionaries became the "missions department" of Bethel Temple, the local church Ralph and Rose were pastoring at the time.
Ralph was frustrated. He felt he was not adequately serving either ministry; neither was prospering. He found himself at yet another crossroads in his ministry walk.
A Critical Turning Point Ralph came to a point that so many in ministry come to.
It was in this challenging season in 1963 that Ralph Mahoney, feeling like a complete failure, wrote a letter to God.
God sovereignly visited Ralph with a fresh dimension of grace, and "turned his captivity". Ralph began to truly understand the difference between working FOR God and working WITH God. Within a matter of months, the Lord had confirmed His desire for World MAP and launched the ministry into what would be many years of fruitful service.
Ralph readily acknowledges God's providence in all this: "In retrospect, I realized it was the will of the Lord that my own efforts fail, so that I would know that only God could bring to birth and accomplish what He had given me as a vision."
A Fruitful Vine During this season, the Lord gave Ralph a mental picture in which his church in Louisiana appeared as a vine being pruned. Then the vine began to wither and die, and was burned with fire until only a stump remained. The remaining root was transplanted, and burst forth into new life again - but this time the vine reached "over a wall" to the ends of the earth (Gen 49:22).
The Lord used this vision to help Ralph understand that he was to leave the Louisiana church, and transplant the ministry of World MAP and his family to California. The first official World MAP offices were "planted" in an old chicken coop in Fontana, California!
A short time later, World MAP began a close association with Elim Bible Institute and Missionary Assemblies in Lima, New York. Elim was experiencing a mighty outpouring of the Holy Spirit; many of their staff were traveling the world, preaching the Gospel and proclaiming the message of the
