Gainesville District



 It is with great joy that Bishop Sue has named Dr. Alice Rogers as the next superintendent to the Gainesville District beginning after annual conference in June.  I have known Alice for my entire ministry.  She has served all of her appointments and assignments in the North Georgia Conference with integrity and skill.  I have always found her to be engaging, open, desiring to see the church grow, and excited to see others come to know and love Jesus.

     Alice has a life and church background that is well suited to understanding the circumstances in the Gainesville District.  In my conversations with her since she has been named to this position, she has expressed real appreciation for the clergy and lay leadership of the district and is excited about the prospects of working with you to grow the Kingdom.

     I know you will welcome her and receive her just as you have welcomed and received me over the past seven years.  Your love and support has sustained me and I know she will be able to expect the very same love and support for her.

     Between now and June, you and I have much work that needs to be done to continue Kingdom work in the district and to prepare for a smooth transition for her.  Keep me and Alice in your prayers as we work together in this transition.

                             In His Service,



District Superintendent
