Bishop Graves Announces New Staff Members

November 16, 2017
The Alabama-West Florida Conference, under the leadership of Bishop David Graves, is pleased to announce two new staff members.
Ms. Celeste Eubanks will be joining the connectional ministries staff as Director of Leadership Strategies, effective January 8, 2018. Eubanks currently works in the secular human resources field but has recently felt a call into ministry. She has been active in the Mobile district and the conference through her service on the Board of Ordained Ministry and the district board of trustees. Celeste also serves as a delegate (lay member) to annual conference through St. John UMC.
Mrs. Sarah McWilliams began her ministry on October 10 as the conference receptionist and connectional ministries administrative assistant. She has extensive experience in a variety of areas with her work in a local church prior to coming to the conference office. 
“I am thrilled to announce the addition of Celeste and Sarah to our staff,” said Bishop David Graves. “They both have exemplified excellence in their previous work. They will bring new energy to the conference office and I look forward to seeing their growth in this conference. It is a priority to me to develop a staff that can best serve our churches in an efficient way. Celeste and Sarah are high capacity, highly relational individuals who will help move this conference forward. Join me in welcoming them to our team.”
