Habitat for Humanity International has named Jonathan T. M. Reckford, a businessman and current executive pastor of a large Minnesota church, as the chief executive officer of the Georgia-based homebuilding ministry. Reckford, 42, was president of stores for the Musicland division of Best Buy before starting two years ago as administrator for the 4,300-member Christ Presbyterian Church in Edina, Minnesota. He succeeds interim CEO PaulLeonard. The widely admired ministry a year ago was battling with founder MillardFuller over retirement terms until Fuller finally formed another agency doing related work. Ex-president JimmyCarter praised Reckford’s selection as “a wonderful choice” to help Habitat “navigate the economy and business climate” while employing his “pastoral experiences” for the ministry.
