	ST. LOUIS (DNS) -- Christian Board of Publication (CBP)
announced today the resignation of Patricia Ray Case as
editor of The Disciple magazine, effective early in 2002.
Following an extended period of reflection and discernment,
Case tendered her resignation saying that her call to
mission and ministry are no longer a fit to CBP.

	Case was named the fifteenth editor of the magazine in
1997 in a line that goes back through predecessor
publications for 140 years. She was the first woman to hold
the post with The Disciple. Previous to becoming editor,
Case served for seven years as associate editor for the
publication. During her tenure, the magazine continued to
receive numerous awards and recognitions for content and
design. Among her notable accomplishments was the direction
of a complete redesign of the magazine's editorial content
and graphics that first appeared in 2000.

	Case is a native of Kingfisher, Okla. She was an
award-winning newspaper journalist in Oklahoma City, an
editor in Enid, Okla., and public relations director at
Phillips University before joining The Disciple staff.

	The Disciple magazine is a publication of Christian Board
of Publication, providing "news and opinion" for
constituents in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
