Kim Ebersole has tendered her resignation effective Oct. 9. She has been serving on the Church of the Brethren denominational staff as director of Family Life and Older Adult Ministries.
She began in the position in 2006, working for the former Association of Brethren Caregivers (ABC). The 2008 merger between ABC and the Church of the Brethren staff merged her position into the Caring Ministries of the Congregational Life Ministries of the Church of the Brethren.
Among her many accomplishments, Ebersole successfully coordinated five National Older Adult Conferences, including the most recent NOAC held on Sept. 7-11 at Lake Junaluska (N.C.) Conference Center. She has worked effectively with the Fellowship of Brethren Homes, and under her leadership an emphasis on child protection was heightened and important resources developed. She contributed in numerous ways to successful Annual Conferences and collaborative staff projects.
“Kim exemplified teamwork, detailed follow-through, a caring manner, creativity, artistic talent, and servant leadership, all characterized by an excellence which consistently defined her work,” said Jonathan Shively, executive director of Congregational Life Ministries. “We deeply appreciate Kim’s years of service and pray for a joy-filled retirement.”
