Pete and Martha Roudebush retire from Southeastern District.

Pete and Martha Roudebush have announced plans to retire as executive ministers of Southeastern District, effective Aug. 1. They plan to begin retirement by camping their way to Alaska in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.

The Roudebushes began their ministry as co-district executives on April 1, 2001. During their tenure, Southeastern District established its first Hispanic church and is working on its second, began an ACTS (Academy Certified Training System) ministry training program called School of Spiritual Leadership, called ministers to serve as directors of Outdoor Ministries at each of the district’s camps, and made advances in the utilization of technology.

Pete Roudebush was called to the ministry in 1998 by Eaton (Ohio) Church of the Brethren, where the couple both served as deacons for 20 years. Martha Roudebush served on the staff of the Eaton Church as director of Lay Ministry for 10 years. They moved to Southeastern District in 2000.
