It is with mixed emotions that we announce that the Rev. Dr. Jean Hawxhurst will be leaving the Kentucky Annual Conference as the District Superintendent of the Frankfort District to accept a position leading a new ministry within the Office of Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships for the Council of Bishops. She will start as the Associate Ecumenical Staff Officer on March 1, 2015. While we are excited for Jean and the opportunity this appointment gives her to impact our denomination, we will deeply miss her leadership on the Cabinet. She has done a superb job as a District Superintendent and we will miss her articulate voice and gracious spirit on our Cabinet team.
