Episcopal News Service. September 16, 1992 [92195E]

Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning announced major staff changes effective September 1. Bishop Furman Stough, senior executive for planning and deputy for the Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief, "will conclude this chapter of his ministry," Browning said in the announcement. Stough has experienced health problems in recent months. Browning said that Stough will serve until the end of the year as a special advisor to the presiding bishop and "will continue to serve on the senior executive group and work to strengthen the Martin Luther King, Jr. Legacy Fund." Browning added that Stough "will also help determine new initiatives for the Presiding Bishop's Fund and generally assist me during the initial period of the new configuration." Barry Menuez, who has been serving as senior executive for Program, will take Stough's place, and Diane Porter will assume the Program position and also continue as executive for Advocacy, Witness and Justice. Browning said that "this realignment will best serve the interests of the church as we carry out the mission to which we are called."
