95062 CHANGES IN NEWS BRIEFS DISTRIBUTION ANNOUNCED
by Jerry L. Van Marter
Beginning with the next issue, every church in the
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) will begin receiving a copy of "News
Briefs" each week. This will increase the circulation of "News
Briefs" from its current 3,000 to approximately 15,000.

will be addressed to "Pastor/Head of Staff." The first several
issues to this expanded audience will include suggestions on how
to further disseminate the news to other church staff, elders,
deacons and members of congregations.

Briefs" will receive it just as quickly second class as they would
To make this transition possible, next week's "News Briefs"

subsequent issue will be dated the Friday of the week you receive
We hope this increased distribution will enable more
Presbyterians to know more about their denomination.
