Cal-Nevada Conference Foundation exec to move on

August 23, 2007

Bishop Beverly J. Shamana has announced the resignation of the Rev. Mark Parsons as Executive Director of the California-Nevada Conference Foundation.

Citing Parsons’ “strength of vision and leadership,” the Bishop expressed gratitude for his five years of dedicated service as a member of the Conference Ministry Staff. She credited him with working to lead the Foundation Board of Directors to develop and refine the Foundation’s strategic goals.

“In the areas of investment management, planned giving, stewardship development, capital campaign and endowment development, the Foundation has grown in making bold its witness to Empowering Congregations – Growing Joyful Givers,” Shamana said.

She called on all Conference members to “continue to serve God in faithful and wise resource management as we have been led.”

Parsons and his wife, Cathy, are heeding a call to ministry in Minnesota.
