US Mennonite Brethren

One Family. One Lord. One Mission

Our Staff

Don Morris - National Director

Prior to taking on the role of USMB’s national director in August 2016, Don served as director of Mission USA for 12 years and as interim executive director for two years. Whether facilitating networking, resourcing local congregations or leading church planting initiatives, Don’s passion is for bringing people to Christ. “My heart will always be about reaching the lost,” he says. He and his wife, Janna, attend Memorial Road MB Church, Edmond, Okla. When he’s not interacting with people from across our national church family—which he thoroughly enjoys, by the way—Don might be found rooting for his favorite college football team, Kansas State. don@usmb.org or don@missionusa.net.

 

Donna Sullivan - Administrative Secretary / Bookkeeper

Donna has been managing a myriad of behind-the-scenes details for the USMB, including administration, bookkeeping and event planning, for more than 27 years. Donna says, “I count it a privilege and blessing to have my life’s work be in service to this family of MB churches." She and her husband, Tim, are members of First MB Church in Wichita, Kan. Her favorite pastime is spending time with her seven grandchildrenoffices@usmb.org

Lori Taylor - Executive Assistant

Lori joined the USMB staff in 2008 and says, “This job is a blessing from God and I enjoy every aspect of it. I am constantly encouraged by the life transformation stories I hear from all over the world. This input creates an excitement in me to be a part of God’s work.” She and her husband, Geoff, share a passion for supporting and encouraging healthy marriages and blended families.  They have one son, three daughters, two wonderful son-in-laws and one granddaughter. Lori enjoys cooking a big dinner, then lingering at the table with family and friends over good conversation and a cup of dark roast coffee. lori@usmb.org

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Connie Faber - Editor, Christian Leader

It is obvious to all who meet Connie that her commitment to the church—both her home congregation and the larger Mennonite Brethren family—runs deep. Connie has served with the denominational magazine since 1994 and as editor since 2004. In her role with the magazine, Connie's contact with many congregations and people has given her an appreciation for the diversity of the USMB family. “Each church is different, with a unique role to fill in their home community,” she says. “Each church has a story to share and special people that call that church home.” She and her husband, David, have three children and attend Ebenfeld MB Church, Hillsboro, KS. editor@usmb.org

Heather is the newest addition to our USMB staff, working for us as a virtual assistant through BELAY, a virtual staffing company. Heather is mom to two sons, Finn and Caden, and lives and works in Huntsville, AL. socialmedia@usmb.org
