 Presbyterian Church Announces Job Cuts


The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) said Monday that 75 employees at its headquarters will lose their jobs as $9.15 million in budget cuts have forced the denomination to reorganize its mission program.

In addition, nine unfilled jobs at headquarters were being eliminated, along with 55 overseas mission positions _ 40 of which were being lost either through retirements or end of assignments, the church said.

Slightly more than 500 headquarters employees were notified Monday whether their jobs were cut, retained or revised as part of the restructuring within the 2.3-million member church.

"This was a very grim morning," said John Detterick, executive director of the General Assembly Council, which oversees most of the denomination's offices and approved the budget cuts.
