Who’s in the Stream
The Living Stream Church of the Brethren consists of many people from many places. Here are a few of the people who help lead the stream:
Enten Eller has been with Living Stream Church of the Brethren since its beginning, serving as our Tech Deacon (technology expert) and regular worship contributor. He resides in Palmyra, PA, with his wife Mary, but also commutes part-time to Ambler, PA, where he team-pastors the Ambler Church of the Brethren. Shown here with Mary, Enten has extensive experience using electronic communications to make connections for worship, education, and building community, serving at our national seminary before returning to pastoral mininstry. (Not just anyone can make headphones look so snazzy!) Contact him at Enten@LivingStreamCoB.org
Bobbi Dykema brings art and balance to the Living Stream pastoral team. She now lives in Springfield, IL, where she also serves as a pastor of the Springfield Church of the Brethren, in addition to teaching online courses in the humanities and world religions. She has a passion for the arts in religious expression and for social justice! Contact her at Bobbi@LivingStreamCoB.org
Daniel Klayton brings his passion for peace and justice to us from Oroville, WA. Daniel is pursuing an M.A. in Theopoetics and Writing at Bethany Theological Seminary, while providing part-time pulpit fill and a pastoral presence at both the Ellisforde and the Whitestone Churches of the Brethren in Washington’s Okanagon Valley. In addition to his work in the church, Daniel works with the library system of North Central Washington. Contact him at Daniel@LivingStreamCoB.org
Debbie Eisenbise, of Kalamzoo, MI, is the newest addition to our pastoral team, determinedly proving that even non-techies can present meaningful and moving worship services online! Her bio and photo will also be updated soon. Debbie has served on the denominational level, then returned to the pastoral ministry, serving as an interim pastor for various congregations, most recently responding to a call from a United Methodist congregation in transition.

Bruce and MarySue Rosenberger have stepped back from leading worship services, but are still recognized as pastors emerti for Living Stream Church of the Brethren as they continue to serve behind the scenes. In past years, they served the Church of the Brethren (and world) as pastors, chaplains, administrators, authors, camp directors, teachers, and more. Now retired in Westerville, Ohio, they share with Living Stream their gifts, perspectives, and deep passion for ministry. Contact them at MarySue@LivingStreamCoB.org and Bruce@LivingStreamCoB.org
