Bishop David Graves has announced one change to the AWF Cabinet. Dr. Jeff Wilson, current Montgomery-Opelika District Superintendent, will also serve the Montgomery-Prattville District, effective July 1, 2020.
Rev. Allen Newton, current Montgomery-Prattville District Superintendent, will receive an appointment into a local church on the aforementioned date.
“In this season of uncertainty, one thing I am grateful for is the leadership of Rev. Newton,” said Bishop David Graves. “Allen has faithfully served the Montgomery-Prattville District and will take numerous gifts and graces into the local church. His family is a blessing to our conference and I look forward to following his ministry.”
As conferences continue to find creative ways to be the best stewards of ministry funds, the Alabama-West Florida Conference will continue to assess how to faithfully focus on our priorities.
“Dr. Jeff Wilson is a highly gifted individual who will strategically serve two districts,” Graves continued. “This model will most likely be something we continue to consider as we streamline our leadership roles. We must continue to be adaptive leaders while staying focused on the mission.”
All other clergy appointments will be published online in early June.
