Andi Thomas Sullivan has been named executive director of His Nets, Inc., a non-profit organization that fights malaria, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa.
Sullivan co-founded the ministry that purchases and distributes long-lasting insecticidal bed nets with her father, T Thomas, in 2005. A former missionary for both the Southern Baptist Convention and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, he resigned recently as coordinator of the Cooperating Baptist Fellowship of Oklahoma to become a pastor in France.
In the seven years His Nets has been in existence, the organization has distributed over 112,000 nets, preventing an estimated 224,000 deaths from malaria, according to a news release.
Sullivan holds a bachelor of arts from Furman University and a master of divinity from McAfee School of Theology. She is currently pursuing a master of arts in International Affairs at American University in Washington, D.C. She is married to Trey Sullivan.
