10/1/97 Huey Perry to retire as chaplaincy manager

ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BP)–Huey Perry, chaplaincy manager for the North American Mission Board, will retire Oct. 15. Perry first came to the Home Mission Board in 1977 to lead the agency’s institutional chaplaincy program. In 1986, he was elected director of the chaplaincy division.
Perry will be the assistant director of chaplaincy services for Allied Holdings in Decatur, Ga., the nation’s largest transporter of new automobiles. Allied has one of the oldest business-industrial chaplaincy programs in the United States. He will be responsible for recruiting, training and supervising contract chaplains for the 140 terminals across North America.
“I feel blessed that God gave me the opportunity to be here,” said Perry, referring to his 20 years of service with the missions sending agency.” I never would have believed that a preacher boy from Alabama would have this kind of opportunity. It’s been a great journey.”
