Ben Allston, Jeremy Buckley, and Jordan Craft serve as the 58ten Leadership Team. They founded 58ten with the help of friends, mentors, a whole lot of guidance, and wide open doors that God provided. They all lived together, worked together, and started 58ten together in 2011.
Ben now resides in Raleigh, NC where he moved to trick the beautiful Lora McCaskill Allston into marrying him. He also is now blessed with an amazing 9 year old daughter, who some of you may know as the Curly Girl, and a new baby boy named Jack!
Jeremy Buckley and Jordan Craft continue to live in Pennsylvania. Jordan is a great email conversationalist and loves all things Philly while Jeremy loves USA soccer, Manchester United, and most importantly the Michigan Wolverines.
Dani has an Irish heritage and has served on the board since the inception of 58ten in 2011. He has been one of 58ten’s biggest fans while keeping us accountable to our values. Dani is a husband to Cara, a father to Finn and Sola. If you ever want a random statistic, a tennis match, or a plain hamburger, then Dani is your guy.
Amy first joined 58ten when she was eavesdropping on a conversation Jordan was having with his pastor, Randy (Amy’s husband). She was so excited that as soon as Randy mentioned Amy’s name she came around the corner offering her services. And her services have been much appreciated. Amy has brought wisdom, spiritual fervor, and, being the mom of 4 kids, a lot motherly insight to 58ten. Amy, her husband and two sons were able to visit Kenya in June of 2014 and loved it. 58ten continues to be blessed by the Mullens at Abundant Life Bible Church where they serve.
We are excited to have had Clarke join the 58ten board in 2014. He brings years of business knowledge to the table as well as a lot of practical wisdom. Clarke was Ben and Jeremy’s Sunday School teacher for years at High Point Baptist Chapel and has been a positive influence on each of the founding members. Clarke and his wife Renee have sponsored children through 58ten since it was founded and have played key roles in several 58ten events. Clarke has 2 daughters, 4 grandkids, and is very good at golf.
John Mark serves at 58ten’s Kitui Baby Home Coordinator. He focuses specifically on Kutui Baby Home donor relations and communications while also keeping a road map of projects to be done at the Kitui Baby Home. John Mark and his wife Holly have been involved with 58ten since the very beginning and hold a special place in their heart for Jeremy Buckley who is their two daughter’s uncle. John Mark flies for American Airlines and is based out of Frisco, TX.
Jon is the “Creative Director” of 58ten and has played an essential role in 58ten since it was first founded. Jon heard about 58ten through his brother Ben and was hired to design the 58ten logo. A donation was given to cover Jon’s expenses for the logo that he created, but he’s been volunteering ever since then. He has literally been a Godsend to 58ten and the organization couldn’t have a better brand manager. Jon and his wife Colleen went to Kenya in 2013 to visit the child they sponsor. Jon is also a new dad to a beautiful girl.
Cynthia has been serving with 58ten since the very beginning. Her key role in the organization now is bookkeeping and collecting pledged donations. She has been a valuable asset to the organization both through small tasks and creating efficiency in internal processes. We first met Cynthia at High Point Camp where she served in most ever role at one point or another. Cynthia currently lives in her hometown of Denver, Colorado.
