Carol Wise feels very fortunate to be a part of the BMC staff at a time in history when change is so visible and real. She has an MDiv from the Iliff School of Theology and was profoundly shaped by her experience on the pastoral staff of the La Verne Church of the Brethren. Carol has also directed a residential facility for abused and/or neglected teenage girls, and worked as a social services manager. She served on the BMC board and also has strong ties with the COB Womaen’s Caucus. Carol lives with her spouse, Kim, and worships with Common Spirit COB, a house church in Minneapolis.
