Steve Crain resigns as campus pastor at Manchester College.

Campus pastor Steve Crain has decided to leave Manchester College to develop programs and educational opportunities for young married couples and singles at Trinity Episcopal Church in Fort Wayne, Ind., according to an announcement from the college. Manchester College is a Church of the Brethren school located in North Manchester, Ind.

"Steve joined the college in July 2007, bringing an interfaith focus to our campus that is diverse with students from at least 30 religious affiliations," said Manchester president Jo Young Switzer. "He made sure that campus ministry supported our mission to value the infinite worth of each person." Crain will continue to teach as an adjunct at the college, with a section in Christian Traditions this fall.

The college begins a search for a new campus pastor in the fall, coordinated by Beth Sweitzer-Riley, vice president for student development. Planning for interim leadership of campus ministries is under way.
