Her dream job is working at the Smithsonian Institution, the museum in Washington, D.C., that is often referred to as the “nation’s attic.” But this summer, Kali Miller is working in the “attic” of the Fellowship of Grace Brethren (FGBC), helping organize artifacts and catalog files in the Grace Brethren archive. She is continuing to inventory items given to the Archive by Encompass World Partners last year. The collection includes historic correspondence, photographs of ministries through the years, and other items related to the early history of Encompass, which has been the international missions and church planting agency for the FGBC for more than 100 years.
A native of Garrett, Ind., Kali is a senior majoring in history and sociology. Next year she will also begin working on a master’s degree in higher education at Grace, with an emphasis on working in student affairs. She served as a resident assistant (R.A.) last year and is the R.A. at Lamp Post Apartments this summer.
Her position is made possible because of a generous gift to the Archive by the Grace Brethren Investment Foundation.
The Archive is located in the lower level of the Brethren Missionary Herald building. It is open by appointment only.
The development of an archive on behalf of the FGBC has been a focus of the Brethren Missionary Herald Company at the request of the Fellowship Council, the governing board of the Fellowship. Individuals who have items to donate or who wish to make a gift to the archive may contact Liz Cutler Gates at 574-268-1122.
