Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson has announced three changes to the Appointive Cabinet effective June 2017.
Rev. Jane Brooks will be promoted to serve full time as Assistant to the Bishop. In this role she will ensure that all aspects of the Annual Conference are working together to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. She will ensure that all branches of the Annual Conference (Conference Staff, Board of Ministry, Cabinet) are working in concert and not duplicating efforts. She will also oversee special initiatives and projects as directed by the Bishop.
Rev. Dana Everhart will become the new Director of the Office of Ministerial Services and Board of Ministries Registrar. In addition to serving as Atlanta-Emory District Superintendent, Everhart has served as the Cabinet liaison to the Board of Ministry and his gifts uniquely lend themselves to effectively recruiting, forming, and developing clergy in this Annual Conference.
Rev. Dr. Phil Schroeder will remain as Director of the Office of Congregational Development, but will be promoted to serve as a full member of the Appointive Cabinet. This will include participating in appointment-making sessions to advise the Cabinet regarding matters of congregational development.
