Invitation for Conversation on New Staff Position

March 8, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Invitation to Three Opportunities for Conversation on a New Staff Position in The Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church

Dear Virginia Annual Conference,

We are excited to invite you, as the Body of Christ in the Virginia Annual Conference, to a conversation regarding a potential new staff position that will serve the Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church (VAUMC). Our Episcopal leader, Bishop Sharma D. Lewis, and other VAUMC leadership, envision this new position to be one that embodies, facilitates, coordinates, and prophetically calls forth with accountability the needs of the Annual Conference in the areas of Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (JEDI).

The actual title and Ministry Description of this new full-time position is being shaped, and we hope to begin a search by June 1, 2022. We discern this position to be missionally driven and a strategic necessity for the future vitality of our Annual Conference.

Your input is a desired and vital component not only to help us shape the JEDI Ministry Description but also desired outcomes of such a ministry on behalf of our Conference. Indeed, we profoundly hope to model the four areas of the JEDI in the very DNA of the hiring methodology, so please make every effort to attend one of these three one-hour meeting opportunities. Twelve of these listening/learning sessions are occurring in our Conference, including 22 groups. These three open invitation meetings are broadening our communications reach even more. We look forward to hearing from you.

Please join us for one of three one-hour Zoom meeting on: 

March 8 at 6:00 PM
March 9 at 4:45 PM
March 9 at 6:00 PM
