Faithful Leadership

On Sunday, March 3, Graceworks formally thanked Willis O. Serr II for his longtime service to the organization. Bill faithfully served Graceworks for over 30 years, with many of those in the role of President and CEO. Bill has earned a happy retirement filled with Ohio State Football games and travel with his wife and adult children.

Today, Judy A. Budi becomes the eighth CEO of Graceworks Lutheran Services. Graceworks was incorporated in 1926 as the Lutheran Inner Mission League of the Miami Valley. Many things have changed over those 90+ years, but the constant has always been the organization’s mission to faithfully care for community members. Today, we serve older adults at Bethany Village, through Graceworks at Home and Graceworks Housing Services. And we remain dedicated to caring for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through Graceworks Enhanced Living. With Ms. Budi’s leadership, we look forward to the future.

Bill and Judy recently discussed the history of Graceworks. Here is a video of them reminiscing together.
