Karen Garrett, office manager for the Brethren Journal Association, will resign her position as of September 30, 2019. She has served BJA and its publication, Brethren Life & Thought, since September 2007.
“On behalf of the Brethren Journal Association board, I am writing to express our thanks to Karen for her eleven years of dedicated work in this role,” said Jim Grossnickle-Batterton, president of BJA. “The BJA will miss Karen greatly. She has helped to keep Brethren Life & Thought on track, and for many of our subscribers, she is the personal face and voice of Brethren Life & Thought. It has been my pleasure to work with Karen, who is an invaluable resource of relational service and attention to detail. We wish her well in her next endeavors.”
Garrett, who earned an MA from Bethany in 2009, also works as coordinator of assessment for the Seminary and will continue in that role.
