Kae Neufeld, D.Min, an active member of the Mennonite Brethren Church who is well known for her work in education, ministry, social justice and community service, has been named recipient of the 2012 Kevin Carr Christian Leadership Award.

The award is given annually by Newman Theological College and is named for Kevin Carr, who in 1993 became the first layperson to be appointed president of the College. It recognizes individuals whose outstanding Christian leadership reflects the values of the college and the qualities that Carr cherished and exhibited in his work as president.
