Hyacinth Stevens to lead MCC East Coast

Hyacinth Stevens has been named the executive director of Mennonite Cen­tral Committee’s East Coast office. Stevens will replace Bruce Campbell-Janz, who is stepping down after ten years in the role.

For the past seven years, Stevens has worked as MCC’s New York City program coordinator, where she helped the New York Mennonite Immigration Program achieve nonprofit status and Board of Immigration Appeals accreditation.

Stevens is a bishop member-at-large on the conference executive council for LMC, the conservative Mennonite denomination that broke off from Mennonite Church USA in 2018. She is the first woman to hold the position in the denomination. Previously, Stevens spent 12 years as pastor of King of Glory Tabernacle in the Bronx.
