Ingold retires as director of buildings and grounds at church's General Offices.

Dave Ingold, director of buildings and grounds at the Church of the Brethren General Offices in Elgin, Ill., has announced his retirement effective Dec. 31. He has served in the position since 1981. He and his wife, Rose, who also works at the General Offices, plan to move to their farm in Missouri.

He has worked for the Church of the Brethren for a total of 28 years, beginning in Oct. 1980 as an engineer. He was promoted to his present position the next year. During his tenure, he has overseen several large capital improvement projects and efforts to "green" the General Offices facilities, most recently the replacement of the roof of the General Offices buildings, and replacement of aging air conditioning equipment with a new environmentally friendly and economical "chiller" system.

In previous positions, Ingold worked in the north African country of Niger with several service institutions including Lutheran World Relief and the International Red Cross. During his service there, the Niger government cited him for his unselfish work. The son of Church of the Brethren mission workers, he grew up on the mission field in Nigeria. He worked briefly for the Church of the Brethren mission in Nigeria training drivers for the Lafiya medical program.
