President

As founder and president of Lifesong for Orphans since its beginning in 2002, I am passionate about bringing joy and purpose to orphans. With my business background, I have enjoyed helping in the development of sustainable business opportunities for many of our orphan care initiatives.

I’ve been married to Marla since 1977 and we are blessed to be the grandparents of 15 beautiful grandchildren (7 through adoption).

Andy Lehman

Vice President

I have been with Lifesong for Orphans since its inception in 2002, serving as Vice President and orphan advocate, developing partnerships, growing church relationships, launching new initiatives, speaking, and advocating globally. I also serve on the Board of Directors for the Christian Alliance for Orphans and the Orphan Sunday campaign, have been a guest on numerous Christian radio programs, and have authored articles for Focus on the Family and elsewhere.

Prior to my role at Lifesong, my wife, Jill, and I served as house-parents at Gateway Woods, a Christian children’s home for at-risk youth. We are adoptive parents and have 4 children (2 through adoption) – Travor, Haley, Caleb, and Hope.

Kory Kaeb

VP Operations

Serving at Lifesong as Vice President of Operations, I’m focused on stewardship, excellence, and best practice as we care for families and children. Prior to serving on staff, I worked as a physical therapist and clinical director with children with disabilities at Easter Seals. I have been involved with the ministry of Lifesong for many years as an Orphan Advocate.

My wife, Megan, and I are the parents of 6 children (2 through adoption) — Mya, Simon, Jonah, Sean, Suhn, and Zak.

Rich Metcalfe

Program Director

Since late 2010, I have served as Program Director for Lifesong for Orphans. I’ve been married to my beautiful wife Becky for more than 25 years and have 6 amazing children (1 through adoption). Prior to joining the Lifesong team, our family served as missionaries in England for 11 years.

I am thankful for the opportunity to connect with churches and individuals with the Father’s heart for the orphan and the need around the world. There is so much to be done, and the Lord has chosen the Church to be His vessel in meeting the need.
