Doug Congleton retiring, but not leaving the ICC Family

My times are in Thy hand.” Psalm 31: 15

Many of you have had the opportunity to meet with or speak to Doug Congleton, ICC’s Executive Director. If so, you know him to be warm-hearted and caring. 

For a quarter of a century, the lives of ICC children and family members have been forever blessed by Doug’s dedication and compassion. He has faithfully championed the cause of orphan children around the world and has been a true friend to ICC children, staff, and supporters. Thus, it is with sadness that we announce that Doug is retiring so that he will be able to spend more time with his family. 

Doug has traveled to many of the children’s projects. His enthusiastic smile, cheerful voice, and loving embrace have warmed the hearts and lives of ICC children. Doug well knew that he represented you to the children. Doug took it upon himself to carry your love to them, to tell the children about you and how much you care for them. Through all these years, Doug has been a caring and effective representative for you.

Though this will be a time of transition for Doug and ICC, Doug continues to be passionate about this mission for orphan children. He wants to continue to be supportive, and we are exploring ways to make it possible for him to remain active in the ministry of ICC. 

Rick Fleck, ICC President, has shared that,

“Doug has been a great friend, even before he joined with the ICC ministry, and I know that he is truly passionate about saving and mending these broken lives, working hand in hand with our Savior, Jesus. We wish Doug God’s richest blessings and look forward to still working with him as he is available.”

If you’ve known or worked with Doug, what a nice gesture it would be for you to reach out to him and express your love and appreciation. You can reach him by e-mail at
