                      by Jerry L. Van Marter 
LOUISVILLE, Ky.--The Rev. Curtis Kearns, director of the National 
Ministries Division (NMD), has been granted a six-month leave of absence in 
order to complete an early retirement program for AT&T, his previous 
     From Dec. 18 through next summer's General Assembly, the Rev. Vernon 
Broyles, NMD's associate for corporate witness, will be acting director of 
the division. 
     When Kearns accepted his current position a year ago, the General 
Assembly Council was aware that he had opted for a special early retirement 
option with AT&T that would require the additional six months of service 
there.  The remaining time will entitle Kearns to what he calls "a modest 
pension" for having completed 25 years with AT&T. 
     In a memorandum announcing his leave, Kearns wrote, "I have great 
confidence in the staff and elected members of the division to continue the 
kind of outstanding leadership that has characterized its work for the past 
two years."
