Leadership Changes in the California-Nevada Conference


Clergy and Lay Members of the California-Nevada Conference,

Grace and peace to you in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus on this Sunday!

I wanted to keep you informed of some leadership changes that will be coming in the future that affect all of us and that would be blessed by your prayers.

Rev. Schulyer Rhodes will be retiring at the end of the conference year (June 30, 2020) and thus leaving the position of District Superintendent of the Los Ríos District.  I have asked Rev. Shinya Goto to assume the superintendency of the Los Ríos District following Rev. Rhodes.  New to superintendency in our California-Nevada Conference will be Rev. Dr. Samuel Hong.  I have asked him to step into the role of District Superintendent of the El Camino Real District effective July 1, 2020, leaving his present appointment to Korean United Methodist Church of Santa Clara Valley, CA after 10 years of faithful service as Senior Pastor of this church.

Let us continue to pray for all who are affected by these changes with special prayers for our clergy and their families who will be moving into retirement or these new appointments.

Blessings to All of You,

Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño
