Feb. 24, 2016 - The Rev. Lindsey Baynham has been appointed to serve as associate director of the conference Center for Clergy Excellence, effective July 1. She will focus on call, candidacy and discernment and expand the conference’s capacity to reach people beyond current channels for leadership development.

"Lindsey is an experienced, creative pastor, and she will expand the conference's capacity to help individuals and congregations hear God's call toward leadership development," said the Rev. Meredith McNabb, director of Clergy Excellence. "I'm delighted to welcome her to the Clergy Excellence team to multiply our ministry to reach the gifted people whom God is calling, but who might not otherwise think of becoming United Methodist clergy."

Baynham currently serves as Minister Director for Arise Campus Ministry at George Mason University, Fairfax.

A Virginia native, she attended Randolph-Macon College in Ashland and earned her Master of Divinity at Duke Divinity School in Durham, N.C. Following seminary, she was appointed associate pastor of Fairfax UMC in Fairfax, where she served for three years. She was ordained an Elder in the Virginia Conference in 2015.

"I am passionate about equipping others in ministry in the church and journeying with those who sense a call to ministry," Baynham said. "I look forward to seeking out leaders to empower and strengthen churches in Virginia as well as the body of Christ."

After July 1, she can be reached in the Clergy Excellence office in the Virginia United Methodist Center in Glen Allen at (804) 521-1126.
