After review, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, Bishop Sharma Lewis and the Appointive Cabinet have adjusted the “Clergy Move Date” from June 24 to June 30. The first Sunday in the new appointment will be July 5, 2020.

Many factors were involved in making this adjustment including anticipating that the Governor’s Executive order will expire on June 10, that in-person worship will resume prior to the move date, that children in moving clergy families will be living in their new school districts when schools reopen, and that the new appointments will officially begin on July 1 (in keeping with the conference year).

The Bishop and Cabinet said they are hopeful this date will not need to be adjusted further but will continue to monitor the Governor’s directives and the needs of the Virginia Conference.
