Each District in the Oklahoma Conference is strategically important to our work in The United Methodist Church. We have been blessed with the leadership of outstanding superintendents this past year, as in previous years. Effective July 1, 2020, several districts will experience change in their superintendent. We will continue the tradition of excellent leadership by our district superintendents.
Rev. Cindy Havlik has effectively served the district and looks forward to a new chapter in her ministry. I express deep gratitude to Cindy for her leadership and count it a blessing to have served with her on the cabinet in these past years.
It is my pleasure to announce the appointment of Rev. Connie Gibson as the new District Superintendent serving the Council Oak District. Connie has served the Wichitas District with excellence these past four years and demonstrated effective strategic leadership and excellent administrative skills.
Dr. Rockford Johnson will be appointed to McFarlin United Methodist Church in Norman. He is looking forward to his new appointment in the local church. He has served the North Oklahoma City and Crossroads Districts well, his work defining the role of a mission strategist for the past seven years.
I am pleased to appoint Rev. Tish Malloy to the Crossroads District. She has served with distinction the Stillwater and Northern Prairie Districts the past seven years and currently is the dean of the cabinet, effectively keeping the appointive cabinet organized and moving forward.
I am delighted to announce the appointment of Dr. Carol Cook Moore to the Northern Prairie District. She currently serves First United Methodist Church, Alva and chairs the Board of Ordained Ministry. Her knowledge of the personnel processes of the church have equipped her to serve effectively on the district.
I am gratified to announce the appointment of Rev. James Kim to the Wichitas District. He currently serves at Trinity United Methodist Church, Purcell. His focus on making disciples, service to churches in the conference, and his work on the Board of Ordained Ministry and the Conference Relations Committee equip him for the work in the district.
I invite us to celebrate the ministries and pray for both the outgoing and incoming superintendents.
