Once the Madison Youth Ranch’s initial construction was completed, Davidson joined the Board of Trustees at the Children’s Home and has served in various positions on the Board over the years before becoming the Chairman. At the same time he was serving as a Trustee for the Children’s Home, Davidson was named interim president to the Florida United Methodist Foundation while they searched for a permanent president.
“I’m very proud of the passionate and professional leadership team at the Children’s Home,” said Davidson. “I believe the Children’s Home is uniquely positioned to serve more children and families in more ways and more places in Florida.”
Davidson has served as the chairman of the United Methodist Florida conference Board of Pension and Health Benefits, as treasurer of the East Central District of the Florida conference, and as Chairman of the Board of ZOE Ministries. ZOE works with orphaned children and youth in Africa and India through an innovative three year empowerment program. He has also served as Vice Chairman of Agua Viva Serves, a nonprofit clean water ministry in Costa Rica.
Davidson earned his graduate and undergraduate degrees in civil engineering from Georgia Tech and a master’s degree in business administration from Rollins College in Winter Park.
Currently, the Children’s Home cares for over 500 children daily through residential, foster care, and independent living programs.
