Grace and peace to you in the name of Christ Jesus! Today we begin a new Conference Year. We are so grateful to God for having brought us thus far!
The Cabinet joins me in praying for all of you with special prayers for those who have moved to a new appointment. Though we are at a better place
than we were last year at this time, the task of moving is still difficult and burdensome. We are grateful for our clergy who are so very committed to their
vow to be an itinerant body for the sake the mission of the Church, including clergy who are joining us in service from other Conferences in the United
Methodist connection. Some from among our own retired clergy, and from other Conferences, have also stepped up to serve from the retired status.
God bless them! We also give God thanks for Certified Lay Ministers and other members of the laity who will be assisting District Superintendents in
caring for some of our congregations.
You will find the complete 2021-2022 Appointment List here.
I am so very thankful for ALL of you! Your faithfulness is a daily inspiration to my life and ministry. Let us keep praying for one another as we strive to
be faithful servant leaders in the name and spirit of Christ our Lord. God is with us!
Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño is Resident Bishop of the San Francisco area and the California-Nevada Conference of The United Methodist Church.
