Who We Are


Meet the dedicated staff of the Commission on Congregational Development!

Rev. Rebecca Craver, Director of Congregational Development

As Director of Congregational Development, Rebecca works with congregations and provincial leadership to provide resources and support their ongoing work towards greater health and vitality. She works to cultivate collaborative relationships between and among pastors, congregations, provincial and interprovincial agencies and other partners. Working with communities of faith, her passion for capacity building and innovation have shaped her 15 year career in ordained ministry. She has led communities in reimagining their structures, practices, and traditions as they embrace Jesus’ call, supporting them through organizational change, worship creation, and adult learning curriculum. Rebecca’s evenings and weekends are often spent investing in good conversation over a mocha, making new connections in the community, or delighting in the laughter of her children and spouse. Email Rebecca.

Heather Stevenson, Operations Coordinator

Heather is the center of the action at the CCD offices.

She’s been with the Commission on Congregational Development (and previously with the Board of Cooperative Ministries) since 2008. Heather and her daughter, EmmaGrace, are members of Fries Memorial Moravian Church and live in Winston-Salem. Email Heather.
