WILLIAM CUNNINGHAM

 

William’s motto is, “Let’s Get Caught Doing Good Together.” This life mission has influenced the way he operates, regardless of his position. As a US Navy veteran, William served honorably in multiple conflicts and wars beginning in 1985. After serving several years overseas in
multiple countries in the 80’s to early 90’s as a Naval intelligence professional, William accepted a ministry position as an assisting
pastor with Calvary Chapel of Honolulu.

 

A call from the Defense Intelligence Agency in 2004 redirected William to serve as an intelligence asset to Special Forces units in Afghanistan
and Iraq. Over the next several years, he would lead several operational components in multiple hostile locations, ensuring both kinetic and non-combative missions were achieved.

 

Then, in 2012, he focused his interests on creating a better environment by volunteering and then serving as Chief Operating Officer and Major Gift Officer of the largest homeless shelter in Western North Carolina, Western Carolina Rescue Mission, where he continues to serve today. He has been assisting the Director and Board members of the Western Carolina Rescue Mission in downtown Asheville with the management of approximately $2.5 million in contributions and hard assets, while at the same time, coaching life-changing principles to those in need.
