Graves Announces Staff Change and Interim Plan

May 10, 2017
Bishop David Graves announces that Rev. Dan Pezet has accepted an appointment outside of the Alabama-West Florida Conference. Pezet has served as Director of Congregational Vitality since 2014. In that appointment he designed and implemented the Antioch Project to partner with congregations that have potential to begin new lifecycle of fruitful ministry."

“We are sorry to see Dan go but I will always support our clergy when better opportunities are presented,” said Graves. “We are grateful for his faithful leadership and dedication to his appointments, especially to the Antioch Project. We wish Dan and his family the best in this time of transition. We are taking this opportunity to review the responsibilities of this position and at this time, our current staff will assume those duties.” 

The Antioch Project will remain a high priority and a primary area of focus to the Alabama-West Florida Conference. Churches already enrolled in the program will continue as planned. Rev. Nancy Watson, Rev. Allison Posell and Susan Hunt will continue the work of this ministry on an interim basis out of the Office of Connectional Ministries. 

Pezet will be appointed to the Western North Carolina Conference effective July 1, 2017. For those clergy or churches needing guidance, please contact Rev. Nancy Watson at
