Boyer resigns as executive minister of Pacific Southwest District.

Bryan Boyer, executive minister of the Church of the Brethren's Pacific Southwest District, has announced his resignation effective Dec. 31. He has served in the position since May 2003.

Accomplishments for the district during this time have included establishment of a revitalization and church planting process, development of district policies, and hiring of bilingual staff and translation of publications into Spanish. Boyer was called to the district to provide a strong administrative and mediation background to handle the many challenges of a diverse district.

Previously he had worked in private practice as a licensed clinical psychologist and as a part-time professor at Azusa Pacific University. He also has had 10 years of pastoral experience in addition to management and clinical duties in a large hospital system. Boyer is a graduate of the University of La Verne, Cal State-Fullerton, Bethany Theological Seminary, and the Illinois School of Professional Psychology, where he earned his doctorate. He plans to return to work in his professional field of clinical psychology, serving as a clinician with both the probation and behavioral health departments in San Bernardino County, Calif.
