North Georgia Bishop Mike Watson has announced the appointment of Rev. Coy Hinton as District Superintendent in the Atlanta-Decatur-Oxford District. He will follow bishop-elect Sharma Lewis and has agreed to serve August 1 through the end of the Conference year.
"I feel this is the most effective and least disruptive transition that can follow the joyous and historic election of Sharma Lewis as bishop," said Bishop Watson.
Until August 1, Rev. Dana Everhart superintendent of the Atlanta-Emory District will oversee the ADOX District.
Hinton, who retired in 2014, previously served as District Superintendent in the College Park District.
