Our Churches Clergy Directory Districts Staff

January 14, 2015

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.

I have asked Rev. Kevin Burney to do double duty from March 1st through Annual Conference as the Frankfort District Superintendent while continuing his work as Director of Ministerial Services. I deeply appreciate Kevin's willingness to carry a heavier responsibility.
Let us all keep Jean, Kevin and the Frankfort District in our prayers.

 The Office of Christian Unity and Interreligious Relationships welcomes Jean Hawxhurst.
