Bishop Announces Staff Changes in Center for Clergy Excellence

Bishop Sharma D. Lewis announces changes in the Center for Clergy Excellence effective March 24, 2019.

After serving with distinction as the director of the Center of Clergy Excellence for five years,  the Rev. Meredith L. McNabb is relocating to Indianapolis, IN, for family reasons. She will become associate director of  the Lake Institute at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy at IUPUI (Indiana University-Purdue University-Indianapolis), leading their clergy and congregational trainings around the country. 

The Rev. Lindsey M. Baynham, currently associate director for Call, Candidacy, and Discernment, will become the interim director of the Center for Clergy Excellence. She will serve in that position through the rest of the conference year.

Please join Bishop Lewis in praying for both McNabb and Baynham and the continuing work of the center during this time of transition.
