Hendricks retires as president of the Mutual Aid Association.

Jean L. Hendricks has announced her retirement as president and general manager of the Mutual Aid Association for the Church of the Brethren (MAA), effective May 1, 2008. Since February 2001, Hendricks has led the association’s ministry of offering property insurance to Church of the Brethren individuals, congregations, and organizations.

Her work has included serving as the chief executive officer for MAA and providing general oversight for the company. She also has offered leadership with the MAA board of directors, coordinated area representatives, and supervised staff in the association's office in Abilene, Kan. She has represented MAA at the Church of the Brethren Annual Conference and district conferences, and has aided the growth of the annual Members' Meeting.

Hendricks is a graduate of McPherson (Kan.) College and Bethany Theological Seminary, and earned a doctorate from the University of Kansas. She has pastored congregations in Iowa and Kansas, and worked for the Church of the Brethren General Board from 1991-97 in the ministry training program. She worked for McPherson College from 1997-2000 as director of church relations. She also has served on Bethany's board of directors, has been an officer for the Brethren Ministers' Association, and was a board member for MAA.

Hendricks helped guide the association through a transition period in leadership at the beginning of her term as president, and will help MAA through another period of transition over the next eight months as new leadership is put in place.
