Donohoo ends service with church’s Donor Development department.

Bryan Douglas (Doug) Donohoo’s service as Special Gifts counselor in the Church of the Brethren’s Stewardship and Donor Development department ended on March 31. His position has been eliminated because of the economic recession and the budget reduction put in place by the Mission and Ministry Board. Each person whose position is eliminated because of the budget reduction is receiving a three-month severance package of regular salary and benefits and outplacement services.

Donohoo had served in the funding and stewardship area since he started work as Financial Resource Counselor for the Northeast on May 7, 2001. He came to work for the former General Board from Southern Ohio District, where he had served on the district board and on the New Church Development Task Force. He is an ordained minister in the Church of the Brethren. During his tenure with the department, he has traveled extensively, meeting with donors and others interested in supporting the ministries of the denomination, encouraging Christian stewardship, and facilitating giving to the work of the church. His five-year service recognition in 2006 honored Donohoo in part for helping to "put the FUN in funding." He has worked out of a home office in Englewood, Ohio.
