NEW YORK (UMNS) - The Rev. Brian Diggs, pastor at the First United Methodist Church of Salt Lake City for the past 10 years, has been hired to lead the new Western Jurisdiction Office of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, effective Feb. 16.

The Rev. Sam Dixon, UMCOR's top executive, called Diggs' experience, commitment and ties to the community "a great benefit to the organization." The Western Jurisdiction Office will primarily serve as a material resources depot to store UMCOR supply kits and will provide new opportunities for kit ministry.

Volunteers are being sought to paint and clean the 25,000-square-foot warehouse. For information, call Diggs at (801) 973-7250 or send an email to WestDepot@UMCOR.org.
