Barb Sayler resigns from On Earth Peace.

Barb Sayler has resigned as coordinator of communications for On Earth Peace, as of mid-October. She joined the staff as co-executive director in Sept. 2000. In May last year, she stepped back from the co-director role to work part-time and have more time for family.

Among her responsibilities in communications have been newsletters, the On Earth Peace website, and preparations for Annual Conference and district conferences. Previous responsibilities as co-executive director included planning and beginning program emphases to envision action as an essential ingredient in peace education. In her role as co-executive director, she also was one of the Brethren representatives to the first International Historic Peace Church Consultation in Switzerland in 2001.

In previous work for the denomination, she served in Brethren Volunteer Service (BVS) and worked as a program assistant for BVS, assistant to the director of the Washington Office, and coordinator of volunteers in Children's Disaster Ministries. Her volunteer service also included participation in JOYA (Journey of Young Adults). She holds degrees from Bethany Theological Seminary and McPherson (Kan.) College.

This fall, Sayler plans an internship with Music Together, a music program for young children and their parents/caregivers, and will begin teaching in January.
