Cynthia Halverson, president of the ELCA Foundation, resigned in January.
Prior to the churchwide office reorganization in October, she also served as executive director of Development Services.
"Since her election to these positions, Cindy has provided exceptional leadership. Cindy is highly regarded by the many generous donors who support the ELCA and by staff and colleagues throughout the country," said ELCA Presiding Bishop Mark S. Hanson in an announcement to staff.
Halverson will complete her service Feb. 11. David Novak, director for gift planning in the Foundation, will complete her four-year term, which ends in October.
