Bishop and Cabinet Announce 2022-2023 Appointment Changes
'I pray our clergy families will find joy and a warm welcome at their new congregations, and that our congregations will be blessed by the gifts of their new leaders.' — Bishop Sue
Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson and the Conference Cabinet have announced 2022-2023 appointment changes of full-time clergy as of April 3. This list will continue to be updated as appointment projections are made. The appointments will be fixed at the 2022 Annual Conference session in June and they are effective July 1, 2022.
“I am in prayer this ‘Announcement Sunday’ for all the churches and clergy entering into a season of transition. Rest assured that hours of prayer and deep conversation undergird this list of projected appointments,” said Bishop Sue Haupert-Johnson.
“I pray our clergy families will find joy and a warm welcome at their new congregations, and that our congregations will be blessed by the gifts of their new leaders. I know clergy are eager to welcome their colleagues moving into their districts, and laity will make the extra effort to help these clergy families quickly feel at home,” she continued. “May the Holy Spirit give comfort in the midst of change and calm anxious hearts during this time of transition.”

In The United Methodist Church, clergy agree to serve where their bishop appoints them. Appointments are for one-year periods. The goal each year is to match the gifts and graces of each pastor with the ministry needs of a particular congregation and community in a particular season.
